Mammoth's bike park offers a variety of terrain suitable for every level of rider, categorized into multiple levels from beginner trails to our pro level lines.
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.
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.
Advanced/Expert/Pro Level Terrain
Mammoth has been and still is the leader in the world of gravity fed downhill awesomeness. Relive the history of the Kamikaze, a blazingly fast dirt fire road dropping from the top of the mountain 2,000 vertical feet down to Main Lodge in only 3 miles. Want to compare yourself to the world's best? Spin a few laps on the Bullet DH, site of the National Downhill Championships in July and the Pro GRT DH Championships in September. Is freestyle your cup of tea? We've got you covered with trails like Pipeline, Recoil and the Twilight Zone. Newcomers to downhill mountain biking should start with trails like Recoil, Shotgun, White Bark and Richter. Our Bike Park Rangers at The Village Shuttle Stop or Adventure Center would be more than happy to point you to the trails that suit your ability level.
