Welcome to the the West Mountain Bike Park Page!
West Mountain’s Bike Park 2018 Update: West Mountain’s Bike Park, due to the mountain being under construction this summer with the new chairlift, the West Express chairlift being retrofitted for downloading as well as other major projects for future summer business; will not be open this summer. We will resume as soon as possible, hopefully late this fall but most likely next summer. Sorry for the interruption. Please stay up to date on all West Mountain’s improvement updates at westmtn.net or on Facebook and Instagram.
Please Call 518-636-3699 ext. 0 for information.
The West Mountain Bike Park has miles of cross-country and downhill trails (over 20 trails and counting) suitable for adults and children with mountain biking experience. We also have a brand new Pump Track called the “Sawmill”! You must have an access band to ride the track and trails and only during business hours. We have Burgers, Beer, Beverages and more available as well. Plan your visit to West Mountain today!
Mountain Biking and Volunteer Waiver CLICK HERE!
Our unbelievable Grassroots Mountain Biking Effort, spearheaded by local, avid mountain biker David Spory, lead to the creation of our new “Big Easy” (over 1 mile) intermediate downhill trail launched in October 2016 during our Fall Festival. Great news! West Mountain will offer more downhill and cross-country trails for mountain bikers that will be accessed by our West Express Chairlift.

Mountain Biking Safety at West Mountain
Cyclists, like all mountain users, should always be alert to the risks inherent in the sport. Responsible behavior and good judgment are essential for you to safely enjoy mountain biking at West Mountain. Remember that the mountain environment poses potential hazards. Rocks, logs and other natural and man-made obstacles may be encountered suddenly and without warning. Be especially careful of water bars, which are ditches or mounds placed throughout the mountain to control erosion. They may be visible or hidden by grass and should be approached slowly and cautiously. We will have ski patrol on duty during business hours, but we ask our patrons to be alert at all times.
