Silver Mountain Bike Park Overview
Check out Silver Mountain Bike Park this summer and enjoy one day FREE with your MTBparks Pass!
What's the story about Silver Mountain Bike Park?
Silver Mountain Bike Park was rated #4 in the Northwest in last year's MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Awards.
With North America's longest gondola, Silver Mountain provides quick and easy access to 3,400' 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 were some of the highlights from 2013?
Last year Silver Mountain started a full re-build on the Lower Hammer, a large machine-built jump line, built Hot Mess, a technical, double black diamond trail in the Chair 3 Zone and re-built Log Jammin, a double black diamond trail featuring lots of elevated features including the whale tail.
The trail building crew also began the process of re-tuning the park's entire trail network and roughed in several new trails, including Happy Day, a six mile Enduro-style green trail.
What's happening in 2014 at Silver Mountain?
An extensive 5-Year plan at Silver Mountain Bike Park gets rolling this summer and the resort has a lot of exciting news to share.
1. For starters, the resort has added two more builders (also passionate riders) to the trail crew for 2014.
2. The resort is implementing all new signage and re-naming some of its existing trails to help make navigation safer and easier.
3. Silver Mountain's trail map gets a makeover and includes all the recently added trail along with the trails that will open later this season.
4. Mountain-side plans includes re-working all of the park's existing trails and completing several new trails that were started last season.
5. And best of all the resort is working on a deep list of all new trails, with plans to get started as soon as possible.
Friday operating hours have been changed this year, moving from a 2pm - 8pm schedule last summer to 9:30am - 8pm, giving you an additional 4 1/2 hours of shred time!
Friday Ride and Dine Returns
Every Friday from June 27 - August 29 you can top off that long day of riding with a tasty mountain-top BBQ feast featuring huckleberry ribs, 1/2 chicken, steak or salmon filet and live music for an additional eleven bucks.

Other trails around the Silver Mountain/Kellogg area
There are miles of single track 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.

Coeur d'Alene: 35 miles (30 minutes) | Spokane: 75 miles (1 hour)
Seattle: 350 miles (5 hours) | Tri-Cities: 205 miles (3 hours)
