Big Sky's mountain biking community is smiling ear to ear. Over the past few years there have been major improvements to the mountain biking terrain in Big Sky and it's putting this mountain town on the map as a mountain biking destination.

Let's face it, summer in Big Sky rocks and one of the big reasons is that the mountain biking in Big Sky is world class. There's a massive trail system that connects hundreds of miles of forest service trails and dirt roads with miles of cross country, single-track, and downhill trails. This trail system links Big Sky Resort, the Meadow, Town Center, Spanish Peaks, Moonlight Basin, and forest service lands seamlessly. But the best part is that the mountain biking in Big Sky is ridiculously fun!
Do you want to pedal through the forests, cruise down dirt roads, hop man-made features, flow down singletrack trails, or explore the mountains on well maintained mountain bike trails? You can do it all in Big Sky.
Lone Mountain Land Company, Boyne Resorts, and the Big Sky Community Organization hired Whitefish-based TerraFlow Trails to take the mountain biking in Big Sky to a whole new level. There is now mountain biking for every ability level, from beginner to expert.
Popular mountain biking trails in Big Sky include:

Big Sky Resort offers over 40 miles of roads and trails - many that are lift accessible via Swift Current, Ramcharger, and Explorer chairs.

Did you know that the Big Sky Bike Park is a two-time Top Five winner at MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Northwest Region? The biking around here is unreal.
If you don't have a bike, don't worry. Local outdoor shops like Gallatin Alpine Sports or Grizzly Outfitters can hook you up trail maps, gear, bikes, and clothing. Grizzly Outfitters even posts local mountain biking maps and current conditions. Need a tune up? Check out Brothel Bikes in the Meadow.
