Mount Washington Bike Park Overview
Following a three-year haiatus, the Mount Washington Bike Park reopens for 2016. The bike park will open with up to six trails, and more trails will be added during the summer. Among the highlights are the Green Line, which is the resort’s easiest downhill trail. It is the longest uninterrupted mountain bike descent on Vancouver Island and all levels of bikers will have fun riding it. The venerable Back in Black will re-open with the lower part of the trail having been reengineered by its original builder, Tony Radomi.
Once Mount Washington's Bike Park is open for the season, the trail crew will spend time maintaining the existing trails while continuing to rebuild some of the original trails on the mountain and creating a few new trails. Next up on the build list for the trail crew are Helter Skelter, a black technical trail, and Time Warp, a black flow trail. Each currently has a machine and full crew working on them. Once that work is complete, another .9 miles (1.5 kilometers) of blue trail will be added to extend an existing trail. As time and weather permit, the trail crew will then tackle the technical Monster Mile downhill trail off the Eagle lift before finishing the summer by adding another blue flow trail and another XC trail.
Getting to Mount Washington Resort
Mount Washington is located 50km south of Campbell River and 100km north of Nanaimo. They are just 3 hours north of Victoria and 3.5 hours from Vancouver- including a 90-minute Ferry Cruise.
