There are more than 20 miles of mountain biking trails on Big Mountain from beginner to expert skill levels. You can ride the eight miles of single-track on the Summit Trail to the top of Big Mountain, or divert yourself on one of the more challenging runs such as Dave's Dive and other trail spurs.
There is also a skills park and other trail features complete with ladders, a tabletop, giant berms, and a step-down which add new excitement and dimension to your mountain biking experience.
Hiking Whitefish Mountain Resort
Departing directly from Big Mountain Village is the popular Danny On Trail, a three-and-a-half to a six-mile trail - (depending on which route you choose) - which meanders up the slopes of Big Mountain through blooming wildflowers to the 7000-foot summit, traversing forests and fields along the way. Epic vistas offer majestic views of the valley and the mountains from various points along the trail.
Pig Farm Bike Trail
This is a great trail for beginners as well as experts. The cross country aspects of pig farms are phenomenal. One might be able to pedal for most of the day and never see the same thing. This is a fun place to ride and get lost. East and North is Farm to Market Road. West you will hit Talley Lake, Private Property or Lore Lake Road. South you will hit Private Property. Just pick a trail or a road. All the trails loop back into each other.
Just north of Whitefish, Spencer Lake is a favorite among locals and a wonderful surprise to visitors.
Spencer Lake trail is located just off of US HWY 93 north of Whitefish, on Twin Bridges Road. Take the gated fire road up about 1 1/2 miles. When the trail starts to go back down the hill, look for singletrack to the left about 100 yds down the trail. Spencer lake offers many advanced, moderate and expert downhill choices. There are some insane bridges and steep STEEP downhills. Lots of fun!
The Whitefish Walking/Biking Path
The town of Whitefish itself is a hikers and bikers paradise since the town spent millions over the last couple of years to create a walk/bike path that transects the town stretching from the edge of Whitefish Lake on the north end of town and weaving back and forth along the Whitefish River, and through the community all the way to the south end of town. The Whitefish bike path and walking path has become a popular new edition of this beautiful resort community.
