Trail Description
About this trail
Currently, none of the downhill mountain biking at Snow Summit takes place on the Snow Summit property (although that might be changing in the near future). However, there are a number of gravity-oriented trails spread throughout the nearby San Bernardino National Forest that can be accessed from the top of the lift via the gravel road network.

Some trails are easier, others are more difficult, but on the whole the singletrack is steep, loose, and rocky. If you're looking for an easier ride down, try some of the gravel roads out, or head way outside of the resort and pick up the Pine Knot trail. There are a few jumps and drops that have been built with the help of fallen trees, but if you're looking for an A-line style trail with berms and table tops, Snow Summit doesn't have it. But if you like to pin it through the gnar, come and check out the steep trails above Big Bear Lake!

Review: Great DH park with loads of trails to choose from. A lot of good berms and tabletops to jump on/over. Best of all is that they have 2 separate lifts.

Review: This is a great place to go riding if you love downhill or cross-country. You take the lifts up to the top and they have lots of downhill tracks, right now they have 2 greens, 1 blue, and three blacks. On the black trails there are features such as jumps, rock gardens, berms, pavers, small drops, and even some bridges.

Review: Summit has a great variety of downhill and single track. when i got too pumped out from the downhill we jumped on some single tracks. It was a good selection to choose from.

Review: Some super steep, very challenging, trails... and so much fun! Great views of the lake from the lift, and white-knuckled descents in the nearby national forest. No flow trails here... it's basically all gnarly, narrow singletrack!

Review: Great location for beginners, advanced, and families. Something for everyone. Took me 3-4 trips to learn the good spots and now I'm hooked. Fun little set upx on some trails (jumps, logs, t-totter, etc.). Lifts run a little slow for scenic purposes but can make that up flying down
