Bike Park

Named #1 Bike Park in USA by Outside Mag

Mammoth Mountain Bike Park offers terrain for every ability level, boasting 3,500 acres and over 80 miles of single track. We offer the best Beginner experience in the industry at the Discovery Zone, miles and miles of forested Intermediate Cross Country trails and are the leaders in building diverse and creative gravity fed downhill Expert and Pro level trails. 

Our Bike Park blankets all of Mammoth Mountain and more, with access to the Lakes Basin to the south and miles of USFS roads and trails to the north. Start your two-wheeled expedition at the Adventure Center (adjacent to Main Lodge), where you’ll find tickets, rentals and demos, repairs and retail.

From there, you’ll be able to access beginner terrain on Discovery Chair or take the Panorama Gondola to the mid-station or summit for intermediate-advanced terrain. Feel free to ask our bike rangers and retail personnel about what experience you’re looking for; this crew knows every one of our 3,500 acres by heart!

Terrain - Beginner, Intermediate, Expert

Terrain - Beginner, Intermediate, Expert

Mammoth's bike park offers a variety of terrain suitable for  every level of rider, categorized into multiple levels from beginner to expert.  
MTBBeginner Terrain
If you’re new to mountain biking, we recommend a lap around the Pioneer Practice Loop. This first-of-its-kind trail is a simple lap around the Adventure Center that uses educational signage to teach you the right way to ride, while introducing some of the fun elements you’ll find on our trail system. Once you start getting the hang of it, take a ride up the Discovery Chair to the Discovery Zone. Here, you’ll enjoy a handful of trails built just for first-timers, helping you to progress and enjoy the sport more and more with each short chair ride. Downtown would be the final step in graduating from a Beginner to an Intermediate and is an incredible tour down the mountain to The Village.

MTB Intermediate Terrain 
Mammoth’s intermediate terrain is as vast as our name would imply. At the easier end of the intermediate spectrum, Uptown and Big Ring are long, winding trails through the forest that give you the option of a lung-searing climb or a gentle downhill cruise. A scenic descent from the summit can be enjoyed via Off the Top, where you’ll enjoy expansive views of the Eastern Sierra the whole way down. Slightly more difficult intermediate terrain can be found on Juniper, Brake Through, Beach Cruiser and the many more trails found on the trail map. 


MTB Advanced/Expert/Pro Level Terrain  
These are the trails that put Mammoth on the map in the 80s and continue to progress bike park construction into the mid 2010’s. Relive the history of the Kamikaze, a blazingly fast dirt fire road, the world-class Bullet DH, or the freestyle features found on Twilight Zone and Recoil. Looking for your first foray into downhill? Start with Ricochet or Shotgun. Our Bike Park Rangers at The Village Shuttle Stop or Adventure Center would be more than happy to point you toward the right trail for your ability.

Iconic Trails

Iconic Trails

Exceptional Downhill Trails! We are proud of all our trails but there are a few that seem to have developed a bit of a cult following. These trails should not be missed!

  • Kamikaze (Expert): Where it all began, since 1987 riders have been barreling down the 2,000’ of fire road from the summit to Main Lodge. 

  • Twilight Zone (Expert): We have too much fun in this place in the winter, so we decided to carve the berms out, throw some pavers on them and create a truly unique trail. The Deep End and jump line at the bottom help to make this one of best trails ever.

  • Pipeline (Expert): This is where man made features are expertly incorporated into the natural terrain which have made this relative newcomer an instant classic. Dirt jumps, wooden ramps, berms, trestles, gaps and an awesome step-up jump make for a feature laden adventure through the forest.

  • Off the Top (Intermediate): Prepare for an onslaught of views right from the start. The Mammoth Crest, Minarets, Mt.  Ritter and Mt. Banner will all be vying for your eyes’ attention so pull off to the side and take it all in-there is no better view in cycling.

Cross-Country

Cross-Country

Miles of forested Singletrack! Having hosted X-country and endurance events for years Mammoth has a reputation as a world class pedal friendly mountain. Grab a few gel packs, fill your water bottles up and give these classics a try:

  • Beach Cruiser: This four mile intermediate loop starts with some great climbing through large lodge pole pines, and then loops around beautiful Reds Lake before a long roller coaster ride back to the Adventure Center.

  • Mountain View: Catch this oft overlooked gem from the Shortcut/Beach Cruiser junction and prepare for some breathtaking views. Either meet back up with Beach Cruiser or continue across Minaret Rd. for a big loop on forest service land back to the earthquake fault and then downtown trail. (Having a USFS map recommended)

  • Paper Route/Juniper/Manzanita: A local’s favorite and the course for the 24/8 Endurance Race. This rolling loop has incredible diversity: fast downhills, technical sections and even a few switchbacks to climb up on the far end.

  • Uptown: One of the most enjoyable ways to climb 800’ on two wheels.

  • Brake Through: An opportunity to climb up towards mid-mountain and link up with trails like Flow, Lincoln Express, Ricochet and Seven Bridges.

Derailed Zone

Derailed Zone

Pro and Experts Only! Where Gravity Rules! This zone is a downhiller’s paradise featuring 6 Pro and Expert level gravity-fed trails. The entire area is easily accessed from the lower gondola.


  • Recoil: Wide, tall berms and a series of dirt jumps make this a favorite among the freestyle crowd.

  • Chain Smoke: Get ready to test the travel on that downhill rig, you’re going to need it!

  • Velocity: Fast and varied, this technical trail tempts you to let off those brakes.

  • Techno Rock: Just like the name implies, this is a technical, steep trail loaded with mandatory airs.

Getting Around

Getting Around

There are a number of options to get from point A to B at the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park. From the Bike Park Shuttle to the Panorama Gondola to Discovery Chair # 11 and Chair 2 there's always a fast and easy way to access all 3500 acres of the best mountain bike park in the country.

Bike Park Shuttle (9am-5pm)
If you are in The Village at Mammoth, you’ll want to take the Bike Park Shuttle up to the Adventure Center. This shuttle picks you and your bike up on Canyon Boulevard, right next to the Mountain Center. It runs approximately every 30 minutes from 9am-4:30pm daily. You will need a Bike Park ticket or pass to ride the shuttle, which are available at the Mountain Center along with rentals and demos.

Panorama Gondola (Top: 9am-4pm; McCoy; 9am-5pm)
The Panorama Gondola is located at the Adventure Center and runs from 9am-4:30pm daily. You can take the gondola to the McCoy Station or the Summit, with plenty of trail access at each point of departure.
 
Discovery Chair - 11 (9am-4pm)
Discovery Chair provides access to our industry-leading Discovery Zone trails. This lift accesses two exceptionally fun beginner trails, an intermediate trail and our new and improved Skills Park.
 
Chair 2 - Opens July 4 (Fri-Sun 10am-4pm)
Starting July 4th, 2014 we’ll be running Chair 2 for those riders looking to lap the Pro and Expert trails in the Derailed zone and still hit the features on Lower Twilight Zone without having to ride down to The Village. Chair 2 provides access to McCoy and mid-mountain trails like Brake Through, Bearing Straights and Gravy Train.

Rest Stops
Throughout our network of trails you will find shaded rest stops with drinking water and picnic tables for your convenience.
