Silver Mountain Bike Park Overview
Silver Mountain Bike Park is the 2014 Best Bike Park in the Northwest and a 2013 Top Five winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Awards
Featuring North America’s longest gondola serving 3,400 feet of ridable vert, SIlver Mountain’s short lines, long runs, dense forests and mix of tacky, loamy soil make it a surreal—yet relatively unknown—riding destination that should be on your radar regardless of what corner of the country you call home. Even advanced riders won’t want to skip the blue trails here—they offer some of the most fun on the mountain regardless of your ability. Check out Silver Mountain Bike Park for FREE this summer with your MTBparks Pass!
What to expect riding Silver Mountain Bike Park
With North America's longest gondola, Silver Mountain provides quick and easy access to 3,400 feet of Northern Idaho's best lift served downhill mountain bike trails. Thirty single track trails cover the mountain, most of which are gravity oriented. With all this to offer, we bet you'll will find plenty of great riding to fit your style at Silver Mountain.
The park's Chair 3 Zone offers 800 vertical feet of elevation drop for a less committing experience and gives new riders a chance to ease into the lifestyle with shorter pieces of trail, ranging from wide double-track and mellow single-track to full-on expert level downhill trails and jump lines. For expert level riders, it allows quick access to trails like Hammer, Log Jammin and Hot Mess for hot laps.
For the more experienced riders, continue beyond the Chair 3 Zone to the Lower Mountain and the entire 3,400 vertical feet of downhill goodness. The fastest riders on the most direct route can reach the bottom in about 15 minutes, while the average rider on the mountain's blue trails will take closer to 45 minutes. These trails include super flowy single track, rough, technical fall-line trails and machine built, hand tuned jump lines.
From the time you unload at the top of the mountain, you're in for a roller-coaster descent back to the resort's Gondola Village. When you reach the bottom, load your bike back on the gondola and do it all over again. Take as many laps as you have energy for throughout the day.
What's New at Silver Mountain Bike Park
There were lots of additions for the 2014 season but the most noticeable were the three new technical black diamond trails. Frankenbeans, Hot Beans and Secret Squirrel are mostly hand-built and really add some variety to the trail mix. Riders can expect everything from off camber corners to step downs and rowdy root sections on these fun new trails.
At least two new trails are scheduled for completion during the 2015 season. Snaggletooth is slated to be opened at the beginning of the season and another proposed trail should open mid to late summer. The rebuild of Hammer that happened last fall will be ready to ride on opening day and as usual riders can expect little surprises throughout the season.
A new website, signs, maps and doubling the rental fleet to include new Kona downhill and trail bikes has really made Silver a full service bike park for all abilities.

Other trails around the Silver Mountain/Kellogg area
There are miles of singletrack trails to explore around the region. For visitors looking for more scenic and less gnarly riding in the area, here are two that will keep everyone in your group entertained for hours.
The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes is a 73-mile paved Idaho bike trail spanning the Idaho panhandle between Mullan and Plummer. It was created through a unique partnership between the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, Union Pacific Railroad, the U. S. Government and the State of Idaho.
The Route of the Hiawatha is the "crown jewel" of Idaho rail-to-trail mountain bike routes. It was said to be one of the most breathtaking scenic stretches of railroad in the country, accessible by Interstate 90 at the Idaho/Montana state line - 22 miles east of Silver Mountain's Gondola Village in Kellogg, Idaho.
At the base of Silver Mountain is the Gondola Village, located just minutes from I-90 and local shopping. Stay at the Morning Star Lodge right in the village which boasts secure bike storage rooms (bring your own lock), bike wash stations and access to Idaho’s Largest Indoor Waterpark.
You'll find everything you need, lodging, dining, bars, bike rentals and much more just a few steps from the gondola. Staying at the Morning Star lodge? After riding you can peel off your knee pads and hit the surfing wave or enjoy a beverage while you soak in the hot tubs, watch TV and plan your next day of riding.
Silver Mountain is located in the Idaho panhandle, just a 1/4 mile from I-90. Take exit 49 (Bunker Avenue) off I-90 south 1/4 mile.
