Biking Trail Map

Please note we are not currently offering bike hauls, as we focus first on opening our resort for scenic chairlift rides and hiking. However uphill access is allowed for mountain bike, but we ask that visitors observe all posted signs and closures, and continue to be responsible and respectful of social distancing requirements when enjoying the trails. At this time, we do not have trail maintenance or patrol monitoring trails for hiking or biking. All access to resort trails for these activities are at your own risk. Unmarked hazards or equipment may be encountered at any time (including construction, heavy equipment, man-made objects, variable conditions, and other hazards). In the event of an emergency call 911.
