The ever-expanding Brundage Mountain Bike Park offers a full spectrum of mountain biking experiences. Beginner riders can get comfortable with unpaved terrain as they practice bank turns and gentle rollers in our new “Triple Play” Skills Park. Advanced riders can challenge themselves on white-knuckle downhill trails like Hidden Valley, Zorro and High Voltage. Just about every level of rider will enjoy the 6-mile all-mountain traverse of the popular and flow-friendly Elk Trail.

Triple Play Skills Park
Located in the base area, the Triple Play Skills Park is the perfect practice playground for greenbelt riders who want to transition into downhill mountain bikers. Rolling terrain, wider trails and well-spaced bank turns will build your skills in no time.
The best part, there is no charge to use the Triple Play park, so you can take as many laps as you’d like until you feel confident and ready to take on the true alpine challenge provided on our downhill trails.
Use your own mountain bike or rent one from our fleet to get a taste of the full single track experience.
- Lift-Served Single Track & Downhill Trails
Lift-Served Single Track & Downhill Trails
A 12 minute ride on the BlueBird Quad puts you at our 7,640 foot summit, with 20+ miles of hand-built single track spreading out below. With amazing trail variety and miles of new trail being added each year, the experience always stays fresh.
A cruise down the six-mile Elk Trail gives you a great overview of the mountain terrain. The more exposed top section provides views of the Payette Lakes and surrounding mountains. Dip below the tree-line and you’ll enjoy firm, tacky, shaded trails and scenic creek crossings.
Growler is another popular family-friendly trail which offers open south-facing views of Long Valley and an option to connect to playful and shady Black Bear Loop. (Black Bear Loop requires some uphill riding, but Growler offers a more consistent return to the Blue Bird Quad.)
Thrill seekers can take High Voltage to Zorro for a heart-thumping gravity-fed run through tighter trees and over natural obstacles on the south side of the mountain. To the north, adrenaline junkies will get their fill as they tackle the infamous Hidden Valley trail.
Hidden Valley’s rock gardens and white knuckle drops will get your heart thumping as you begin the 1600+ foot vertical drop through ever-changing terrain and flowing rhythm sections. Features include big jumps and drops, tight corners, log rides and fast chutes.
Newly-constructed options on the lower portion of the trail allow riders to boost the intensity to the skill and thrill level of their choosing.
The Brundage Mountain Bike Park offers a full fleet of rental bikes, including downhill, cross-country and youth-sized bikes, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Check out our Introductory Special and Late-Arrival Pricing if you’re looking for a deal or consider a Thursday or Friday visit if you’re bringing a big group in need of rentals.
- Uphill Biking & Hiking Now Allowed on 4.7 Miles of Trails
Our most popular trails are all ‘downhill only’, but now, cross-country bikers and hikers can enjoy a 4.7 mile loop that connects to the base area. The Triple Play Skills Park, Black Bear and Black Bear loop are now designated as multi-use, multi-directional trails. That means those who like to climb under their own person power have a great new route to use. Most of this trail is nicely shaded and while users will want to keep an eye out for uphill and downhill traffic, there are several wide spots in the trail to help accommodate all types of users.
