Where can I go mountain biking?

Big Sky Resort
Ride the Swiftcurrent Lift for great access to downhill and all mountain trails. The lift-accessible terrain is for intermediate and advanced riders only and there are so many trails to choose from.

  • Season and Hours: The mountain is open daily from 10am-3:30pm for lift-accessed mountain biking from late June to mid October.
  • Rates: Unlimited Day Pass $30 or Single Ride for $15
  • Rentals: Downhill and Cross Country Rentals (including all the gear you need) are available at Different Spokes Bike Shop in the base area (406-995-5849).

Moonlight Basin
While Moonlight doesn't offer lift-accessible mountain biking, they maintain a decent network of trails from their base area. Head to the lodge and grab a trail map to check out loops like Ullery's Lake Trail and the Madison Loop. Rentals available at the Big Sky Base Area.

National Forest Trails
There is a wide network of trails accessible from either Beehive Basin Trailhead or trailheads in the canyon. Here are a few of our favorite trails:

  • Grizzly Loop
    This popular 10-mile singletrack runs through aspen trees and across creeks, with easy to intermediate terrain. The mountain views are incredible. Park at Buck's T-4 Lodge (10 mile loop) or at the Porcupine Creek Trailhead (5.5 mile loop).
  • Beehive Basin
    Climb up the Beehive Basin Ridge and descend down the North Fork Creek Trail. This is a great cross country loop at about 8 miles round trip. Start at the North Fork Trailhead.

Where can I find Bike Rentals and Gear

There are a few shops in Big Sky that offer rentals, bike gear, and maps. Grizzly Outfitters (in the Town Center) has a nice selection of trail maps online.
