Hiking & Mountain Biking
*Trails will be closed 7/18-7/21 for the 2013 Mountain Bike Nationals
Over 7 miles of wooded mountain biking and hiking trails encircle the resort. Hikers can enjoy the local flora and fauna and some spectacular mountain views while trekking on the marked trails. Trail maps are available at the trailhead kiosk in parking lot 4. View our hiking/mountain biking trail map.
Sign and submit our waiver, along with the register, at the Trail Head (located in parking lot 4) before using the trails. This helps us keep track of who is on the mountain and allows up to keep the trail access free.
1. Stay on marked trails. Ski slopes are not open for hiking or riding
and they should only be crossed in designated areas.
2. Bring a buddy- please don't ride or hike alone.
3. Pack it in, pack it out. Please don't litter.
Additional Guidelines for Mountain Bikers:
- Helmets are required.
- Ride within your ability. Our trails become increasingly difficult as elevation increases.
- Ride in control and be able to stop.
- Yield to hikers and uphill riders.
- Make sure your bike is in good working order before heading out
Our trails are all rugged singletrack and doubletracks with plenty of rocks and a few bridges. All trails are cross-country oriented. We do not offer lift service or "downhill" trails. The ski slopes are closed to riders and hikers. Our mountain biking trails are appropriate for intermediate or better riders with their own properly functioning equipment and helmet. Bear Creek does not currently rent mountain bikes. Hikers should have proper footwear and at least an average fitness level.
After your time on the trail visit the Trail's End Café, our mountainside restaurant featuring a bistro-style menu and wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and beverages. The Trail's End Café is open seven days a week and is the perfect place to refuel after a day on the trail.
For those who want to take their time exploring our extensive trail system, spend the night at The Hotel at Bear Creek, our on-site hotel located at the base of the mountain. Featuring 118 rooms, an indoor pool, and indoor/outdoor hot tubs, The Hotel at Bear Creek will leave you refreshed and ready for another day on the trail.
