Discovery Zone Trails

Discovery Zone Trails

Smooth trails, berms lined with cement pavers and gradual slopes are what to expect in this truly extraordinary area that is perfect for riders of all abilities.


Discovery Trail

Discover how fun mountain biking can be on this easy beginner trail. Smooth trail surfaces and limited terrain features make this the ideal trail for the first timer to expand on the skills learned on the Pioneer Practice Loop.

Adventure Trail

More challenges and two-wheeled adventures unfold on the Adventure Trail, where you’ll find both dirt and paver berms, small rollers and an increased trail pitch. This trail ends with a series of dirt berms that could be one of the most enjoyable experiences on two wheels.

Explorer Trail

Step up your game a bit with small jumps, tighter paver berms and a steeper grade. This trail also accesses our new-and-improved Skills Park.

Skills Park

This area of the Discovery Zone introduces bikers to small drops, bridges, rollers, berms and jumps. With multiple-sized features, the Skills Park is a fun and easy way to improve your bike handling and prepare you for some of the larger man-made features through out the rest of the park.

Discovery Chair (11) operates for uphill travel only and guests can hike or bike back to the Adventure Center from the top of the chairlift.

Iconic Trails

Iconic Trails

We are proud of all our trails, but here are a few that seem to have developed a bit of a cult following.

Off The Top (Intermediate)

Prepare for a visual onslaught as soon as you roll out of the upper gondola. The Mammoth Crest, Minarets, Mt. Ritter and Banner Peak will all be vying for your eyes’ attention, so pull off to the side and take it all in. There’s no better view in mountain biking.

Pipeline (Expert)

Dirt jumps, wooden ramps, berms, trestles, gaps and an awesome step-up jump make for a feature-laden venture through the forest. Learn how to whip out your tail, manual over rollers and get a feel for air time.

Skid Marks (Expert)

Peeling off the southern ridge of the mountain is a steep, rocky trail with switchbacks across the top to Gold Hill. If you’re feeling up to it, hammer the 3,100 feet from the top of the mountain all the way down to Juniper Springs Resort.

The Eliminator (Expert)

This is where it all began. Since 1987 riders have been barreling down the 2,000 vertical foot fire road from the summit to Main Lodge.

Cross-Country Trails

Cross-Country Trails

There's a reason Mammoth has the reputation of a world-class, pedal-friendly mountain. Grab a few gel packs, fill your water bottles and give these classics a try.

Beach Cruiser (Intermediate)

This four-mile intermediate loop starts with some great climbing through large lodgepole pines, then loops around beautiful Reds Lake before a long roller coaster ride back to the Adventure Center.

Paper Route / Manzanita Loop (Intermediate)

A locals' favorite and a great place to “lap-out.” This rolling loop has incredible diversity: fast downhills, technical sections and even a few switchbacks to climb up on the far end.

Brake Through (Intermediate)

Climb up towards mid-mountain and connect to trails like Flow, Lincoln Express, Ricochet and Seven Bridges.

Bearing Straits & Gravy Train (Intermediate)

Fast and flowy at the start, then climb up above the treeline and on to the massive expanse underneath the Paranoid Flats ski chutes. Accessed via Beach Cruiser.

Pro/Expert Trails & Popular Features

Pro/Expert Trails & Popular Features

Mammoth is a downhiller's paradise, so grab your full face helmet and some body armor, and get ready to send it. 

Flow (Expert)

  • The Drop
    In the middle of Flow there's a steep section of loose trail that leads you straight to a wooden step down that allows you to drop 5 or 25 ft. You don't need much speed, but make sure you lift up and stay off the brakes – nose dives are common.

Twilight Zone (Expert)

  • Deep End
    This raised wooden berm offers a smooth, albeit slightly intimidating right-hand turn begging to be railed at speed.

Pipeline (Expert)

Dirt jumps, wooden ramps, berms, trestles, gaps and an awesome step-up jump make for a feature-laden venture through the forest. Learn how to whip out your tail, manual over rollers and get a feel for air time.

  • Monolith
    This large wooden up-and-over begs to be hit with speed after coming off some fun little doubles. Get ready to pull some G’s through the right-hand turn below the landing.
  • Thing One & Thing Two
    Pipeline has 2 large gaps at the top of the trail. Both are wooden takeoffs that have a mellow (blue) side. For the first gap, you’re going to need to carry some speed off of Flow and pedal around the blind corner, which will put you right in front of a perfect takeoff requiring a ton of air – this is Thing One. It's advisable to hit the blue side first to get used to the run-in. Thing Two comes soon after and is a step-up with two sides. The gap side (black) requires speed, but again, the blue side can be ridden over and allows you to work your way up to its bigger brother next to it. 

Chain Smoke (Pro)

Starting with one of the most technical rock gardens on the mountain, which also happens to be right underneath the gondola – this trail is going to put your skills, and suspension to the test. Keep an eye out for "the Waterfall", a near vertical chunk of rock midway down the trail.

  • The Monkey Wrench
    Towards the bottom of Chain Smoke you'll find a hoot of a stepdown/rock ride with a wooden landing. The takeoff is not totally defined, so cleaning this one deserves a small fist pump.

Velocity (Pro)

Fast and varied, this technical trail tempts you to let off those brakes.

Techno Rock (Pro)

Just like the name implies, this is a technical, steep trail loaded with mandatory airs and rock rides. Get a look at the rock-to-wood and rock-to-dirt step downs visible from the lower Panorama Gondola.

  • The Bus Stop

    This large rock-to-wood drop requires some speed and commitment. Plenty of airtime is available if you can navigate the slightly off-camber takeoff.

Bullet (Pro)

Starting from the top of Canyon Express (Chair 16) this trail is full-on from start to finish. Highlights include the "Bullet Rock Garden", "Heart of Darkness" and "Elevator Shaft".
