Beginner Mountain Biking

Skibowl is a great place for beginners to progress! Leave the uphill travel to us and focus on just enjoying the beautiful downhill flow trails. Our main trail down, the "Gnar Gnar Trail" is a fun flowy beginner green trail with smooth bermed turns and friendly modest trail features. Some optional larger features on the way down also provide opportunity for riders to challenge themselves as they see fit and progress when they are ready. We also have various features in the skills park area for riders to work on progressing their fundamental mountain biking skills.

Conservation is Key

Keep Mt. Hood Green

Do your part to control the spread of invasive weeds: Please clean your bike before entering the bike park. Invasive weeds can spread when their seeds hitch a ride in the mud and dirt on your bike, shoes, and other equipment. Some plants can even spread from vegetation that can get stuck in your chain or gears.

It is of utmost importance that we protect Mt. Hood's water resources, prevent erosion, revegetate the landscape, and promote bee habitats while the bike park is operating and/or under construction. Our Trail Crew has experience as trail stewards for other Mt. Hood bike trails and they work closely with the US Forest Service to make the Bike Park a sustainable and environmentally-conscious project.
