Mt. Hood Mountain Biking Trio


Mt. Hood is already known around the world as a top-level snow sports destination. Its reputation as a go-to spot for mountain biking has also been growing in recent years, making it a year-round destination. With the opening of Timberline Lodge's new mountain bike park on Aug. 12, that status will only grow.

Experienced riders are already familiar with the 17 miles of single-track trail at BLM's Sandy Ridge, not to mention Mt. Hood Skibowl's lift-assisted access to all sorts of trail features at their Freeride Park. Now a third option has opened up, as Timberline Lodge has announced that the Timberline Bike Park is running 7 days a week through Labor Day weekend. (They'll announce their post-holiday schedule when it is finalized soon.)

Six trails are open this year, with more planned for the future as additional phases of work are completed. They offer an even mix of difficulty, with two trails each measured at beginner, intermediate and advanced. The best part is you can bring the whole family, because they have classes for beginners and kids available to get the younger members of your squad interested in the sport. You don't even have to bring your own bike, as they have various options for rent. 

To learn more about what the park has to offer or to purchase lift tickets to get out on the trails, go to their website here. We hope you have an epic (and safe) ride on Mt. Hood this season.
