Mountain Biking Snowshoe Bike Park

*****   Add a review
#4 of 108 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
#315 in the world

With nearly 40 trails and 1,500 vertical feet of descent, the park has something to offer everyone. Riders new to the sport will love our machine-groomed trails to build confidence. Experienced mountain bikers will relish expert terrain with berms, jump lines and man-made features. Best of all, the entire park is serviced by chairlifts and shuttles, so you'll never have to pedal back up the mountain.

    Basin Area side of the Mountain is fun for quick rides on the Trail rig but the Western Territory has the sweet long descents with so many great trail options flowing off of Skyline that will really test your suspension setup. Dreamweaver, Skyline, Ninja Bob and D to DD were some of our favorite routes we got to run down the mountain but it's all good here! So much fun and you have 360° mountain views from up top! A must ride!

    This is the beginner trail at Snowshoe. It is well built and plenty of fun. I couldn't get my wife off of it. Thanks to this trail, I can get her to ride park anytime!

    This is the best riding in the East. This is the only DH park that can compete with the West. What a blast!

    Wicked trails from rugged cross country to all the downhill ride the lift craziness you could ever want! All skill levels can shred. Deluxe accommodations and tons of alternative adventure activities. World class high end mountain actives, WV gives up the most natural background and snowshoe has painted a masterpiece of a downhill trail system!

    I'm more of an all mountain/trail rider. DH isn't my true discipline, however I had a blast here. I ran an open face helmet and light knee pads so I stuck with the green and blue trails. Even so, there are many features that allow you to test and hone your riding skills. Pumping, getting good body position. This is one of the few places as a trail rider where I could get air.

    This s place is a blast. Can't wait to go back.

    I was very impressed with Snowshoe's Bike Park! The Basin side has excellent tech sections, pretty much all the letter trails to the rider's right (A-K) will put your skills to the test. Sketchy as shit in the wet!

    Even the green run "Easy Street" is fun and a good way to end the day. Sections M and O have really good tech bits too.

    Unfortunately during my visit most of the Western Territory was closed because of the Pro GRT race. Ninja Bob, Ball and Jack, and Powerline were all open though so I rode the shit out of them. Missing Link is a great trail too. It's a black diamond, but there's nothing really big on it. It's just steep. Tons of berms though.

    The backcountry trails at Snowshoe are also a lot of fun. Go check out the fire tower and take the 6000 Steps trail back down to Shavers Lake.

    Couldn't have been a better opening weekend! The trail crew really did a great job getting the park ready for summer 2016. Stop some wet seeping portions, but a few more dry days should take care of that!

    Love this place. Great place to test any type of riders skill. I recommend a good DH/Enduro Bike. I wrecked my XC/Trail bike. Recommend a full face helmet, and neck brace, knee pads and elbow pads. I wish i had elbow pads in my wreck. lol. I have the wreck on Youtube, Just look up SnowShoe Bike wreck, youll find it.

    Awesome. Many trails to ride and keep busy for an entire weekend. Groomed or flat out untouched raw, they have it all.
    Negative was your in a locked location and everything is full retail and the food more so. WIFI SUCKS, HARD TO CONTACT your buds to hookup for runs.

    For those of us on the more all-mountain/trail side, this is a great place to hone your skills. We went on opening weekend (2015) and it was surprisingly not too packed. This park has smooth beginner trails up to professional downhill courses. I liked the rougher trails that had easily avoidable features while my buddy enjoyed the fast and smooth trails like Skyline and Upper and Lower Dreamweaver. Overall, a great experience and a bucketlist type trip for those on the east coast.

    Keep in mind that there is some single track on the mountain....not a lot, but the the XC people that visit its not all Downhill here. Ask the shop at the top of the MTN to show you a map.

    I only had a weekend to spend here and wish I had a full week. Having only ridden at 7 Springs before this, I was in awe when I arrived and saw that there are more than one lifts to take you up the mountain because there are that many trails. The trails here are no joke. FAST with a lot of rocks, drops, and berms galore. I reccomend riding C, to Lucid, to Raging Bull for newbies. The new beginner trail is fun too but gets lame after one or 2 runs.

    Fun gravity trail system. Lots of variety of trails from fast smooth jump filled trails to steep rocky and technical. It is definitely worth checking out. I recommend going on a weekend because the Western Territory where the longer and more fun downhill trails are was only open on Saturday and Sunday. There was some good stuff on the Basin side but it is more of a hill compared to more like a mountain on the Western side.

    Overall, lots of trails to ride, lots of variety, lots of jumps from beginner to advanced.

    If you like downhill then you'll like this place. However, don't bother spending your hard earned money to ride their singletrack. You can ride much better stuff for free in nearby Slatyfork, Tea Creek, Kennison Mtn. areas. Besides, Snowshoe is one of the big dollar sponsors who supports creating more wilderness areas in WV which prohibits biking. I spent my last dollar at Snowshoe a year ago. My rating is for the XC trails, not the downhill. They do have some awesome downhill trails.
