YEAH. WE GOT
IT GOING ON.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

ROAD CYCLING

Mt. Whitney Way

Beginner

While there are many enjoyable dirt roads to ride on around here, we like Whitney Way the best. It offers a total of 5.6 miles (round trip) of quiet, well-graded and scenic riding. Suitable for beginners, there is a steady climb when riding the road in either direction. The good news is that there's also a great downhill to enjoy in either direction, too!

The Brewster Peninsula Trails

Beginner, Intermediate

Everything here is fun to ride. There are two choices for trails and a couple of additional connecters. The Ridge Trail is beginner-intermediate and tons of fun. The Lake Shore Trail is more challenging but well worthwhile for the stunning mountain and lake views. If you’re not comfortable riding on rocks you may need to walk your bike at times.

The Flume Trails are well designed, well thought out, well built and well maintained. There are about 10 miles of trails varying in difficulty from easy dirt roads to steep, technical single track. The trails adjoin the Whiteface Mountain Bike Center which adds even more really good terrain.
