What should I wear?

Helmets (full face is recommended), and sturdy closed toe and heeled sneakers are required in the mountain bike resort area. We also recommend you cover up with long sleeves/shorts and protect your body from a range of elements. Full finger gloves give added protection for your hands, and goggles are the best choice for eye protection against dirt, branches and other obstacles you might run into on the trails. Elbow and knee pads also give added protection from cuts, scrapes and impact. Full-suspension bikes, pads and other protective equipment are recommended.

Gear is available for purchase/rent (helmets and pads) in the Crank Bike Shop.

 

Do I need a trail pass if I am not taking a lesson?

Yes.  Lift access passes are available for riders comfortable with lift service mountain biking and are required for anyone riding Cranmore downhill trails.

Do you offer mountain biking on cross country trails?

Cranmore is surrounded by a well – established cross country mountain bike trail network sanctioned by NEMBA. This is a free trail network, some of which cut through Cranmore property. Riding these trails is at the rider’s own risk and are not patrolled by Cranmore’s patrol staff.

The trail network will continue to grow when the Mount Washington Valley Recreation Path is installed. The 4-mile paved path will run between Cranmore Mountain and Settlers’ Green Outlet Village and will provide residents and visitors with opportunities for safe, family-oriented recreation and transportation.

PLEASE NOTE: THE CRANMORE BIKE PARK IS A FEE AREA. A TICKET IS REQUIRED TO ACCESS THE TRAILS AND TRAILS WILL BE MONITORED.
