  • Do not attempt any of the trails or features unless you have sufficient ability and skill to do so safely. Always ride in control and within your ability level.
  • Helmets are mandatory in the Bike Park and protective padding & full face helmets are strongly recommended. Full suspension bikes are recommended.
  • The Bike Park is not recommended for first time cyclists, without proper instruction.
  • All inexperienced riders under age 13 should have the consent of a parent or guardian to ride in the Bike Park unaccompanied by an adult.

As with many adventure sports, riding in the Bike Park involves the risk of injury, including serious injury, head injury, paralysis or death. The risk of injury increases with the degree of difficulty of the trail and the speed of descent. Although the risk of injury can never be eliminated, the rider can manage the risk through controlling speed and choosing terrain appropriate for the rider’s skill and experience. Orientation sessions, participating in lessons & clinics will also assist the rider in managing the risk of injury.
