Hardwood Ski and Bike has over 80 km of beautiful, rolling trails through hardwood and pine forests, perfectly tailored for mountain biking. In addition to the 34 km of rolling double track trails, there is an additional 50 km of challenging single track trails that intertwine with the ski trail network creating endless possibilities of courses and obstacles.

The terrain is immaculately maintained creating a perfect riding experience every time. From easy trails like “Crank’d” to expert trails like “Sidewinder” and “Radical”, there is no limit to the amount of challenge you can experience while you are here. Ride Guides has worked closely with Hardwood Ski & Bike to provide a full service guiding and instruction experience for any and all skill levels.

WHAT TO BRING

Here is a list of what you need to bring with you

On top of the mountain bike & helmet, there are a couple of other items that you will need to bring for your safety. We like to consider these items critical to your safety. If you don’t possess these items, we can help you out by renting them to you for the duration of your ride:
  • Water Bottle(s) or Hydration System
  • Protective Eyewear / Glasses
On top of the critical safety items, there are a number of other items we recommend you bring with you if you have them – they will make your experience more enjoyable:
  • Riding Gloves
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect Repellent
It is important to make sure that you are dressed appropriately for the weather. Mountain Biking is a strenuous physical activity so you also want to be sure the clothing you are wearing allows for good breathe-ability. when in doubt, dress in layers which can be easily removed and stowed. Some areas of the trail can be prone to poison ivy at different times throughout the season, so you will likely want covering on your lower legs to help prevent exposure. Another key clothing item is padded riding shorts. These shorts can help save your butt from a couple hours of saddle punishment, and we highly recommend them.
