      Otis Mountain Recreation Area is a 1940’s ski hill that has evolved into a challenging mountain bike, ski and trail running destination and is the home of the Otis Mountain GetDown music festival. This area consists of over 600 acres of privately owned land and includes several summits, breathtaking views of the Giant Range, a significant waterfall, and a large heron rookery on the property.

      The trails range in difficulty from lowland cruisers to technical, challenging climbs, as well as natural and man-made features. Experienced riders will want to check out BTW, Flowbee, Widowmaker, California and Upper Currey. Beginners will enjoy cruising the Wookie Loop and Lower Currey.

      This is a festival site, so you will find many structures including stages, a lean-to, a bunkhouse and storage buildings on the property. The landowners generously allow use of the property for recreation, but please be respectful and do not enter any of the buildings. Outhouses are available in the base area and may be accessed by trail users.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: Yes
      Land Status: Private Property
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Approximately 2 miles south of Elizabethtown on Route 9, turn left onto Lobdell Lane. Please drive slowly on this dirt road! Parking area for trail access is just outside the entrance gate at the end of Lobdell Lane. You will see a gate shack with a map kiosk at this parking area.

      Weekly group ride meets on Sundays at 9 AM (aka "Dirt Church") inside the gate at the bottom of the first ski hill.
