Downhill Mountain Biking
Downhill biking is closed for the season.
Ride purpose-built downhill mountain biking trails – designed and built in conjunction with Highland Trails LLC, of the industry-leading Highland Mountain Bike Park in the beautiful White Mountain National Forest.
From the forgiving corners and straightaways of Mainline, our green-circle freeride trail, to the sharp curves and rollers of Bandit, our green-circle technical trail, these trails are ideal for beginners and seasoned riders.
The completion of this blue freeride trail marks over 10,000 feet of trail built this summer and one of many downhill milestones hit since May.
Cinder tracks underneath the Gondola and winds through Loon Mountain Park - appropriately highlighted with features that mimic those seen in winter. (Spoiler Alert: Check out the hip on the backside of the Superpipe drop-in.) It finishes with steep and deep berms that duck through the trees eventually dropping you back into Mainline.
Derailer features a couple of jumps and some steeper berms. Focused on progression, these jump features can be rolled over so you can scope 'em out before you commit to air time.
The two new Blue Freeride trails, Derailer and Cinder, were built in tandem with Highland Trails, LLC, and are stocked with flowing berms and options for air - the next progression from Mainline and Spur.
Speaking of Mainline, 2,500 feet has been added, bringing that trail's total length to over 2 miles.
Uphill Capacity Doubled
Seven Brothers Triple is now doubled up. As of July 24, the lift's bike-carrying capacity has doubled (since the '19 season) to get you on the trail more quickly.
The Big Picture
In May 2019, Loon broke ground on a multi-phase plan to build a network of over 15 miles of downhill mountain biking trails. Designed and built in conjunction with Highland Trails LLC, the new network of trails will complement our 6 existing miles of cross-country biking trails. Once all phases are complete, Loon will offer over 25 miles of downhill and cross-country biking trails.
Health & Safety Guidelines
- Masks are required while in line for the Seven Brothers Triple. A full-face helmet is not a substitute for a mask.Masks are strongly encouraged for all guests while riding Seven Brothers Triple.
- RFID gates are used to reduce human contact.
- While in the lift life, visual cues and signs are in place as reminders to maintain at least 6 feet of distance between groups.
- Self-grouping is performed by guests. Guests who have traveled to Loon together (presumably from the same household) can ride the lift together. Guests who visit alone, should ride alone.
- Routine cleaning of the chairs is conducted daily.
