Over the last couple years, bike parks have been popping up all over the United States. In May of 2019, Loon Mountain Resort, one of the most premier and well known resorts in New England, decided to join the movement. The New Hampshire resort broke ground on a multi-phase plan to build a network of over 15 miles of downhill mountain biking trails at their location in The White Mountain National Forest. Having just finished up their second season of operations, the public was blown away by the progress the mountain has made in such a short timeframe.
The trails are being built in conjunction with Highland Trails LLC of the nearby and world renowned Highland Mountain Bike Park. With Highlands help, Loon Bike Park now has a total of seven trails and they built north of 10,000 feet of trail alone, during the 2020 season. As a leader in winter terrain park design and with one of the most dedicated snowboard communities in the region, it is no surprise that the public has high expectations for the newly designed bike park.
To compliment the progress they've made this season this video project sheds light on the current status of the resort and showcases the fact that Loon is becoming a true must visit bike destination that riders of every skill level can come and enjoy.
