SKYPARK MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL SYSTEM

The SkyPark Mountain Bike Trail System is an extensive set of professionally designed bike trails that traverse through dense Alpine forest, natural jumps, wall rides, ladder bridges and obstacles.

Each trail at the bike park is specifically designed to prepare you for the next, slightly more challenging trail. And don’t forget, there’s always an “Easy Way Out” if you’re not confident at any particular point. As a result, you will gain confidence and ability as a rider. Trails are maintained and groomed daily.
