Beech Mountain sports a wonderful system of trails for mountain bikers, from novice to expert. The seven trails, over sixteen miles of spectacular and challenging terrain, will satisfy all riders. Thanks to the efforts of Beech Mountain volunteers, the varied trails are beautifully maintained year-round. Contact the Beech Mountain Chamber of Commerce for trail maps as well as sales and rental of equipment.
Rent a Haro hardtail bike and helmet for a full or half-day of fun for all ages on Beech Mountain’s bike trails; guided, low-impact rides are available by arrangement with White Wolf Lodge.
Beech Mountain is known to riders around the world thanks to the Tour DuPont, America’s foremost road race that was run through the High Country during the 1980’s. The climb up Beech on Highway 184 was recognized as the toughest leg of them all, four miles long and 2300 feet steep.
What is not generally known is that once you make the ride to the top of Beech Mountain from the south as Lance Armstrong did, you can continue your ride on the north face of the mountain as well. You can download an example map of the north face course. Check with the Beech Mountain Chamber of Commerce for detailed information on lodging and cycling routes on Beech Mountain.
