Taos Bike Park
Mountain biking is now closed for the season.
Our lift-service mountain bike trails in the Kachina Basin are the first of a series being built by Gravity Logic, out of Whistler, BC, with the help of the Taos Ski Valley Bike Park Crew. Enjoy this scenic bike ride experience with the whole family. Whether you’re a novice biker or an experienced rider, Taos offers an experience for all levels. All you have to do is choose your spice level.
Green Chile Flow Trail
Our signature run is the Green Chile Flow trail. From the top of Lift 4, all the way to the bottom of the Kachina Basin, this trail is 3.5 miles of dialed turns, amazing scenery, and fun for the whole family. While Taos may have a reputation for steep, challenging wintertime terrain, Green Chile was built with one thing in mind: to provide a summertime experience that everyone can enjoy regardless of skill level. It doesn’t matter if you own a bike or if you are looking to rent a bike from Taos Sports’ fleet, this trail will appeal to just about anyone who is interested in mountain biking.
If you enjoyed riding the Green Chile Flow Trail but are looking for a little more challenge, the Blue Trail was made for you! It’s everything you loved about our trails: the amazing scenery, the attenable challenge, and the excitement all taken to the next level.
The new black trail is a short introduction to the future single track of Taos Bike Park. It’s tighter, steeper, and more natural than our machine-made green and blue trails. The black trail winds through “Arroyo Hono” which many locals will recognize as a popular route to the base of chair 7.
Taos Bike Park
While we love our current trails, we aren’t stopping here! The Taos Bike Crew is continuing to work hard on building new and exciting terrain for mountain bikers. Stay tuned for more surprises coming this season.
