Killington Mountain Bike Park Overview
Killington Mountain Bike Park is a Top Five winner in the 2015 MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Northeast Region.
The Kona “Groove Approved” Killington Mountain Bike Park offers the ultimate summer lift-served mountain biking experience serving up everything from classic cross-country singletrack to challenging big-bike downhill and freeriding trails. Killington Resort is home to 45 miles of trails and a 1,700-foot vertical drop spread across five mountain areas, all served by three lifts.
Killington offers gravity and trail riding for all ability levels and is home to some of the coolest natural and manmade features in the region. The trails tends to cater more to riders looking for an all-mountain riding experience. But if you grab a guide or can catch some runs in with a local ripper, you can connect some great gravity lines as well.
With three new beginner trails being added last season, plus the resort's new Learn To Ride program, Killington is a great option for beginners who want to check out lift-access downhill mountain biking.
Experts will find an endless supply of technical and buffed out terrain coming off of the 4200-foot peak, accessible from the resort's eight passenger gondola.

Killington Bike Park has enough variety for everyone with 45 miles of lift-serviced trails. From easy-going dirt roads to rugged single track, all ability levels can find something to ride on the mountain. The trails range from full on aggressive downhill and freeriding trails to cross-country singletrack.
The bike park spans five mountain areas serviced by the K-1 Express Gondola. The pro, the variation of trail linkages is huge and keeps things interesting. The con, navigation can be a bit of a task. It may be worth trying to tag-along with a local that is familiar with the trails.
The easier downhill trails in the park require sections of pedaling, keeping rider’s speed in check. The more difficult trails are typically technical narrow singletrack that can be very steep in sections. You can also find both man-made and natural features on the trails at Killington.
