Welch Village Mountain Bike Park Trail Descriptions
***ATTENTION*** - Previous experience in mountain biking is highly recommended in order to ride "Joy Ride," the Green Downhill Trail. Downhill MTB trails are very different and at times much more challenging than cross-country MTB Trails. A fair amount of off-road/cross-country mountain biking experience is highly recommended before using the Green DH trail.
Easiest (Green DH) - Gentle to moderate climbs and decent, with obstacles such as rock, gravel, berms, bridges, and pot holes. Previous mountain biking experience highly recommended.

More Difficult - Intermediate (Blue DH) - Challenging riding with steep slopes and/or obstacles possibly on narrow trail or elevated skill obstacles with poor traction. Previous downhill mountain biking experience highly recommended.
Advanced/Most Difficult (Blue/Black DH) - Advanced downhill mountain bikers only. These trails include, but are not limited to, a mixture of long steep descents, loose trail surfaces, numerous natural or manmade obstacles including jumps, ramps, elevated features, berms, drops, rocks, and other terrain variations.

Most Difficult (Black) - Without exception, expert downhill mountain bikers only should be the only riders on these trails. Some of the elements you will encounter include, but are not limited to: large man made and natural jumps, wood ramps, elevated narrow trails, berms, drops, rock faces, and other terrain variation.
Skills Park - We have a small skills park located in front of the main chalet which contains two lines of features. The skills park area is free of charge. However, anyone using the skills park area is required to sign a release and wear a wristband.
