Mountain Biking - XC Mountain Biking

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.

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. 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.


Ride through single and double track trails as you explore our expansive Valley Trail Network at the base of NH's majestic Mt. Washington.
