Mountain Biking FAQ's

A bike park is a network of chairlift served mountain bike trails that take advantage of the natural elevation loss of the mountain. The trails are designed to ride with very little pedaling as riders flow mostly downhill. Once at the bottom, riders load their bikes on the chairlift to do it all again.
We recommended that riders are at least 7 years old or 48” tall when renting equipment. Younger riders can use the bike park as long as their personal bikes meet the minimum requirement of two brakes and knobby tires.
For those under 18, a parent our guardian signature is required on our liability waiver and rental forms. Children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
Trails are for downhill mountain bike users only. There are no other activities allowed. Hikers can use the mountain, but must stay off the bike trails and be very cautious when crossing trails.

We have riding for all ability levels.
Trails are rated similarly to those in the winter.
Green = Easiest Blue = More difficult Black = Advanced

We offer several Green rated trails that can be found from the base area lift (A Quad).

The longest of trails in the base area network are up to 1 mile in length. All base area trails total approximately 3 miles.

The current trail offering is only designed for downhill travel. Uphill travel on the trails is not permitted.
Yes! The minimum requirements for the bike park are two working brakes, and knobby tires. We also suggest that the bikes are full suspension mountain bikes from a reputable manufacturer with disc brakes. We offer a full selection of fully capable adult and junior demo bikes from SCOTT Sports.
In addition to the bike, a helmet and closed toed shoes are required. We also offer additional protection such as knee/shin pads, gloves, upper body protection, and full face helmets.
Athletic clothing that is neither too restrictive nor too loose should be worn along with sturdy footwear.
Demo bikes can be reserved online at or by clicking the bike rentals button on Okemo’s home page.
Bad weather is always a possibility here in New England, but we aren’t afraid of a little rain. We will be open in everything but the worst of weather. If there is any sign of thunder or lightning, we will put a brief shutdown on the lift until the weather clears up a bit.
