The Low Down
There is no greater thrill than Downhill Mountain Biking at Greek Peak! With 17 different trails to choose from, Greek Peak has the perfect track for every rider at any skill level. The Visions Quad chairlift will bring you and your bike to the top of the mountain in no time.
Greek Peak downhill trails consist of several lines that help you customize your day. Riders can take a direct route over a large obstacle or jump. Other less experienced riders may choose to opt for a line that completely avoids features. You’ll always find something new and exciting on every descent.
Beginners will enjoy the amazing scenery and comfort of long straightaways. Our green trails are always a favorite for beginner riders, and the blue trails are great for intermediate riders who enjoy the challenge of an exciting ride. Expert bikers will enjoy the impressive sharp curves and large features of our black diamond trails. Greek Peaks trails provide fun for all ages.
All riders are required to wear a helmet in order to participate. Full Face Helmets are highly recommended.
Not quite ready to go all in? Schedule a lesson with a member of our Bike Patrol! Lessons are conducted daily at 11am & cover beginner basics such as body position, speed control, braking technique, etc to help boost your confidence before tackling the trails. Lessons are approximately 1 hr long. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended to monitor maximum capacities. Please arrive early for check in
