      Massanutten Western Slope offers more than 800 acres with over 30 miles of multi-use non-motorized trails that are great for mountain biking and trail running, much of which was built and is maintained by SVBC. The Western Slope Property is private property that is own by Massanutten Resort and sits just outside of Keezletown about 7 miles from Downtown Harrisonburg.

      Since the Massanutten Western Slope is private property, you MUST have a Massanutten Trail Pass to access it. Since SVBC built and maintains most of the trails at the Nutt, and since the revenue from trail passes goes directly back to SVBC, you WANT a Massanutten Trail Pass.

      Trail Season:
      Open every day: February 15th-November 1st.
      Closed Mon-Sat, Open on Sundays: November 1st-February 15th (due to hunting season).

      Access to Western Slope

      The Western Slope is the private property of Massanutten Resort and is open only to Property Owners of Massanutten Resort and those with a valid and current Western Slope Trail Pass. Passes can be obtained through the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC). Follow the link above on how to obtain a pass.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: Private Property
