Plattekill Mountain Bike Park Overview
Plattekill Bike Park is a two-time Top Five winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Northeast Region.
Now entering its 21st season, Plattekill Bike Park is known for offering the genuine grassroots bike park experience. One of the first lift-served mountain bike centers to open in the Northeast, Plattekill features more than 60 miles of mountain bike trails and is host to a series of races. Plattekill's reputation is built around its dedication and commitment to the sport of biking.
Plattekill began offering downhill lift-served mountain biking in 1995 and was one of the first lift-served mountain bike areas to open in the Northeast.
Serving up steep, rocky and rooty east-coast tech, the Plattekill Bike Park features more than 60 miles of lift-served mountain bike trails that drop 1,100 feet. Don't let the trail map fool you—a spiderweb of singletrack snakes between the main numbered trails, giving you endless options to link up the perfect run.
Classically known as an expert mountain, in recent years, some blue and green flow trails have been built to allow for progression.
Plattekill is open with lift access every weekend and offers a full-service base lodge complete with retail shop, a full line of bike rentals, repair shop, cafeteria and outdoor grill as well as special events and music on the mountain.
BEYOND THE BIKE PARK
The local Rail-Trail system (converted rail bed) that spans 26 miles and consists of marked trail with limited grade variation and miles of scenic views is located just seven miles from the resort offers an alternative to the on-mountain bike park experience.
What's New at Plattekill Bike Park
Last summer Plattekill added Greenhorn, an all-new beginner trail from the top of the mountain which made for a great "starter trail" for anyone new to mountain biking. This introductory trail offers a nice alternative as a meandering, easy flow run down from the top of the mountain.

Plattekill Bike Park has been hosting races since the mid-90s, and has seen some of the DH legends race down their trails. There are over 60 miles of trail to choose from on the mountain. Generally, the trails can be described as challenging, with natural rock gardens, steep chutes, and narrow wooded sections.
There are two lifts that run in the bike park. The trails accessed from the triple lift are rockier and where most of the expert rated trails can be found. The trails located off the double lift feature more dirt and easier ratings. Expert riders will probably have the best time on the trails at Plattekill, but the less experienced riders can still find trails to master their skills on. Whether you are looking to do more XC and trail riding or just shred the gnarly DH trails, there is something to challenge you at Plattekill.
