About the Trails
In May 2019, Loon broke ground on a multi-phase plan to build a network of over 15 miles of lift-serviced downhill mountain biking trails!
Now in our 4th season of operation, Loon continues to expand the downhill network and is moving operations to our new home base, the Governor Adams Lodge. The new home base will transform the biking experience at Loon. Guests will have one central location to pick up tickets, passes, rentals all in one building.
Just a short walk from the Governor Adams Lodge is the Kancamagus 8 lift which will cut the lift ride in half and access 300 more vertical feet of terrain. Designed and built in conjunction with Highland Trails LLC, of the industry-leading Highland Mountain Bike Park, the new network of trails will complement Loon's 6+ existing miles of cross-country biking trails.
Once all phases are complete, Loon will offer over 20 miles of biking trails - the largest network of combined downhill and cross-country trails in New Hampshire.

Go off the rails-here comes a section of Derailer. Used in the railroad industry, a derailer is a device placed to prevent trains from rolling onto the mainline or other tracks. Loon's Derailer, will keep avid riders rolling with speed through a series of photo-ready jumps, rollers and berms.
