Mountain Biking at Bretton Woods
Thank you for a great season!
Lift-serviced downhill mountain biking, XC mountain biking, bike rentals and mountain scooter rentals are closed for the season and will re-open in the spring of 2018. We are gearing up for winter so be sure to check out all of the great winter activities we have to offer!
Enjoy the scenery of Mount Washington Resort by bike on our expansive Alpine or Valley Trail Mountain Biking Systems. Cross-Country (XC) trails and rentals are accessible from the Stone Pillar Lodge located near the Golf Clubhouse near Mount Washington Hotel. Our lift serviced alpine system of mountain biking trails is located across the street, at Bretton Woods Adventure Center. Here, experienced riders can weave their way down a series of trails designed with twists, turns and natural features to make for a fun and exhilarating ride down. Closed-toe shoes are required for Mountain Biking.
Take the chairlift to the top and wind your way down one of the mountain bike trails. For more information about mountain biking at Bretton Woods, please call the Adventure Center at (603) 278-3335.

What is a pump track?
Why ride a pump track?
A pump tack is a continuous circuit of dirt rollers, berms and jumps that loops back on itself and allows you to ride it continuously.
Riding a pump track helps riders of all abilities develop and hone essential 'real-world' mountain biking skills such as:
- riding berms and cornering skills
- using terrain to maintain and / or gain speed
- looking ahead when riding instead of where you are riding
- advanced, playful bike handling skills and line selection
- And it will give you an intense full-body workout
