Mountain Biking Kirkwood Bike Park

*****   Add a review
#116 of 987 mountain bike trails in California
#1509 in the world

Depending on the month, up to 5 ski lifts will be in operation to ferry you to the top of 11 different downhill trails. Their map is microscopic, but the trails are makrked well and in good shape.
Kona Stinky's are available to rent. These bikes are bought new each season, used only on weekends and sold off at the end of the bike season for about half of their new price and they are still in great shape. Coilers too.

    Kirkwood has some of the best backcountry trails in the Tahoe basin. I thought this place was great for skiing but little did I know....when the backcountry access gates are open, skiers and bikers can find great lines heading out of Kirkwood in all directions...this was excellent. I found this great article on Kirkwood Park resorts, check it out .. http://skiresorts.com/content/kirkwood

    rode every trail and climb in one day, what was with the down hill bikes, we did not find any DH runs.

    This is XC all the way, which i love

    Very easy riding, cept the maps are so so at best.
    No need for lift service, staff did not seem to know trails or what was going on!!
    Which was kinda funny

    Take the lift to the top of the mountain and ride!! There is a lot of single track, and of coarse downhill. I was there last summer, it was great. Below are directions on getting to Kirkwood.
