Trail Description
About this trail
Seven Springs has a good variety of both downhill and cross country trails. The downhill trails are marked just like ski trails (green=easy, blue= intermediate, black=advanced). This place provides a great introduction to the uninitiated for lift-assisted downhill biking but also has some real knucklehead stuff for the more skilled/less sane. There's also a good variety of cross-country trails, including a long loop used for an annual 24 hour race.

Review: This is a fun bike park! It certainly pales in comparison to western bike parks, but I rode all day without getting bored. I will be back.

Review: These trails are amazing. Although I must reccomended wearing a helmet and having a designated downhill bike if this is your first time. These trails are the best trails I have ridden but they offer the highest amount of risk.

Review: I've been riding more lift assisted downhill trails this summer and checked out Seven Springs coming back from a family gathering in Ohio. The trails are great with the green being easy enough to ride on a normal travel full suspension bike. The blue and black trails have a good variety of jumps, drops and berms. Prices are reasonable and there are a lot of other summer activities at the park (water slide, zip line course) so bring the whole family.

Review: This review is for the bike park.



It was only my 2nd trip to a lift assist park it this place was great. Had a huge variety of runs, although I stuck to the blues. Has terrain to get a good intro to downhill biking and plenty of very difficult terrain and jumps to keep experienced riders happy.



Everyone I interacted with was great, I'll definitely be back.

Review: Seven Springs has a lift access downhill park and a great network of XC trails. The XC trails have been in use and expanded since the late 80's when NORBA held races there. For 10 years Seven Springs hosted a 24 hour race over Labor Day. I live close and ride the trail network often (in fact, Paul and Moses, mentioned in an earlier post, are my neighbors). If you are a good rider and you hit all of the XC trails you can ride all day. The "race course" is about 12 miles, contains several challenging rock gardens, fun single track and some energy zapping up hills. If you can find a local to ride with, you will not be disappointed. If you are a single speed rider, there is nothing that a good SS rider can't ride. I hope this review is helpful. Maybe we will meet on the trail!

Review: Great place to try out lift accessed biking. The trails are laid out well, demo process of bike was smooth as silk, and all around great set up. Kinda wish trails were a bit longer, but not much you can do there. Great place to learn and progress your skills.

Review: If you want to try out lift assisted downhill riding for the first time, this is the place to go. The staff is awesome and the trails are pretty cool too. There aren't a lot of trail options and there is only one lift, but it still the perfect place to spend a weekend learning how to ride downhill.

Review: I opted to do the DH trails that have been built over a few years. With both beginner DH trails (blue circle) like 007 to Double Diamond trails like Frankenstein and Frankensteins Bride. A nice place to go if your close by. If your driving a distance you may want to stay the night at either the resort or close by in Somerset. Lift tickets are 30 dollars. Trails are well marked. Some cool features from wooden Rainbow bridges and wood to wood drops. 20-25 ft table top jumps and rock gardens that makes almost everyone really work to keep momentum going. This place does not have super long runs like out west, but uses what they have nicely making the trails twist back with some great berms and switchbacks.

Review: The trails at Seven Springs are well worth your time. you have a choice between a network of trails (Lake Chestnut Trails) that can be worked into a loop that is somewhere in between 3 and 3.5 miles, or the 24 hour relay loop.

The Lake Chestnut Trails
The Lake Chestnut Trails starts out at the intersection of Pritts Distillery Rd. and Village Dr. you will most likely be coming up the mountain on Village Dr. when Pritts Distillery Rd. sneeks up on the left side of the road, go about 50 feet back on Pritts distillery Rd. there is a dirt road on the right side of the road take that there is a small parking area at the back of this. (I explain that because on my first visit I had a hard time finding it)
The actual Lake Chestnut trail system is very nice, many obstacles that can be taken or avoided. This trail is a lot of fun to ride fast, and a good trail for beginners to develop their skills. Technical challenges include long very difficult rock gardens, log bridges, bolders to ride over, around or between. At one point you will cross the road that you came in on, that is where you will run into the rockgardens. you can skip that by riding down the road to the beginning of the trail.


...The 24 hour loop
The best place to start the 24 hour loop in my opinion is at lake Tahoe (there are signs everywhere for lake tahoe at 7 springs) you will go around the lake (clockwise) and start the initial descent. The loop can be 8-12 miles (12 if you include one loop of the Lake Chestnut Trails) It winds up and down back and fourth between singletrack and fire roads for about 6 miles. The 24 hour loop ends with a rocky climb up 7 Springs' North face slopes, it is a steep accent that will take you up 500 feet in elevation in a little under 1 mile.

*as a local please enjoy these trails but treat them with care because they are owned by the resort and they allow us to be there.
