Excellent place to go for downhill mountain biking. However, this is definitely not the place for a beginner to mountain biking. They have now put in two "beginner" runs that are only about 280 ft of elevation change instead of the normal 1100 ft. The two bunny hill runs are quite flowy and not too horribly steep. You also need to tell the driver each time to stop at the bunny hill runs but it's not horrible. However, once you get to the two full length blue runs it does get quite steep. Definitely need to have good bike control and be comfortable sitting way back on your bike. The price is not horrible at $47 for a lift ticket for the day. You can rent full suspension bikes that are pretty decent for about $130 as well if needed. I used a hardtail with 180mm rotors in the front and back. The bike is the airborne griffin and I would say that it is about the lower limit of what can be used on the trails. I stuck to the blue runs and didn't progress past that as a full suspension is almost needed for those trails. A full suspension is recommended but a hardtail is definitely doable if you are used to the bike and it had a front air fork. The best thing is if you are new to this place, start on the bunny hills and slowly progress in a safe and controlled manner.
Had a great time earning Jeep Badges for trails, 16, 26 and 51. Weather was great, trails were most dry and well marked.
The trails are fun but very poorly marked. It’s very easy to get on a very difficult trail that you did not intend to be on due to the lack of trail markers. That would be an easy way to help prevent people from getting in over their heads. We arrived early and saw no other bikers til noon. The shuttle was all ours. This was on a Monday. The shuttle guy was very helpful. It gets steep quickly after the first 3 trails. A full face helmet is a must along w other protection.
Great place to ride.. We own a sxs an rode all day from 10am to about 10:30pm. An never hit tha same trail twice. An tha views were amazing.absolutely beautiful. An gas on site, general store, 2 wash bays(not covered bays) to wash your ride. No beer... they check your cooler an bags. Kinda high on passes..28+ per persons. But! To have something you need to pay. Really good place to ride an alot of beautiful views!
The trails are amazing !!! There are so many trails is so much fun some trails are more challenging. You can see the windmills and there is a over look well worth it.
