If true northern Michigan mountain biking trails are your choice, you can grab a map and head out on 32.5 miles of newly remarked trails. At Boyne Mountain, you can ride to the top to begin your loop or catch a chairlift ride to get yourself and your bike to the top. You will find a variety of options from rugged mountain biking trails to rolling downhill trails and paved trails. The mountain biking trail system offers a variety of loops with descriptive trail names such as Stairway, Rootsville, Climb Time, Outback, Rock- N-Roll and DJ's Drop. These sections are also designated by difficulty level to keep the surprises to a minimum. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, enjoy the seven mile paved loop Mountain that travels around the resort property and offers scenic views of Deer Lake, Boyne Mountain's two golf courses as well as woodlands and wildlife before returning to the resort village.
In addition to Boyne Mountain's extensive trail network, additional trails located nearby make the resort a true biking destination. Two access points to the North Country Trail suitable for biking are located within 10 minutes of the resort as well as the Little Traverse Wheelway, which offers fantastic views of Little Traverse Bay and easy access to the quaint downtown districts of Charlevoix, Bay Harbor, Petoskey, Bay View and Harbor Springs as it winds 26 miles from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs. Plus our sister resort Boyne Highlands Resort offers a variety of biking options, from leisurely paths to cross country trails and Michigan's only lift served Bike Park complete with berms, jumps and stunt features.
The trails are open daily but chairlift hours vary. Please check BOYNE.com or call the Adventure Center at 231.549.7256 for details.
Bike trail access is free of charge. Chairlift access is free for resort lodging guests or $5 for a single ride or $10 for unlimited rides for non-houseguests. Mountain bike rentals are available at the Boyne Mountain Boyne Country Sports store.
