      Scenic carriage roads perfect for a family ride or wooded single track for the more adventerous riders

      The carriage roads at Great Glen Trails are the perfect place to bring the entire family for a bike ride. Our smooth and well-marked carriage roads let you explore the forest and take in the mountain views. Your family will pedal through beautiful meadows, pass scenic rivers and see stunning mountain vistas. We offer rentals for adults and kids. Go at your own pace. Bring a picnic lunch. Take this time to break away and relax—with the whole family.

      We offer a full fleet of adult and children’s bikes from Kona, fatbikes from Reid, and comfort bikes from Schwinn, which are perfect for our carriage roads. All bike rentals include a bike pass and a helmet.

      Are you a biking family looking for some summer fun? Great Glen Trails hosts a Summer Mountain Bike Race Series for all ages and abilities Tuesday nights in July/August.

      Advanced Riding
      Cruise through the woods on our web of single-track trails throughout the system. Long loops and technical challenges are all waiting. And, with trail names like Outback and Whiplash along with our famous Plunge, Great Glen Trails is the place to test your mettle.

      Great Glen offers personalized mountain bike lessons that can bring your riding techniques to a new level. There are many areas we can cover, like how to ride with suspension and improving your riding transitions (hills and corners). Develop your skills for climbing and descending single track, and learn about fitness and training techniques that will help you to be physically and mentally prepared for long or short rides.
