Mountain Biking at Bretton Woods
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.
Lift-Serviced Mountain Biking
Come explore the lift-serviced downhill biking trails at Bretton Woods! Trail passes can be purchased for 2-hour, half-day or full-day increments. Mountain biking enthusiasts can purchase a season pass for unlimited access during normal operating hours. If you don't have your own mountain bike and would like to explore lift-served trails, try renting one of our Diggler Mountain Scooters. This scooter has full sized mountain bike tires and handle bars but you stand on a skateboard-like platform.
Bretton Woods does not rent mountain bikes for the Alpine Trail System. Full-suspension bikes or a Diggler Mountain Scooter, helmets and trail passes are required before proceeding to any lift-serviced terrain. Armor protection is encouraged. View summer trail maps.
