Welcome to Mountain Biking In the Catskill Mountains

The great Northern Catskill Mountains have always been a destination for great mountain biking in the northeast. In 2010 the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup arrived in Windham, NY and made Windham a necessary destination for all Mountain Bikers. With tons of trails throughout the area for all skill levels, Windham welcomes all mountain bikers. The Thompson House is just down the road from Windham Mountain Outfitters where you can rent a bike rental if you do not have your own or if you don’t want to bring one with you on your vacation. Windham Mountain Outfitters also offers bikes you can purchase, safety equipment, supplies, and trail maps. We highly recommend making sure you are full prepared for a day of mountain biking before you head out to the trails.

Elm Ridge Trails System

During the summer of 2015 work on new trails in the Elm Ridge Trail System, just 2 miles from The Thompson House, will begin. These new trails will make it easier for less experienced riders to make it to the top of the ridge, as well as add new harder trails for experienced riders. Trails in the Elm Ridge Trail System are maintained in part by volunteers working with Windham Area Recreational Foundation. Their goal is to connect all of Windham with bike trails, for all of our guests to enjoy.

Windham Mountain Bike Park

Coming July 3, 2015, the Windham Mountain Bike Park is bringing a lift serviced mountain bike park to Windham, NY. Working with Gravity Logic, Windham Mountain is working to expand on the UCI World Cup Downhill track. From the top of the mountain, there will be 4 unique trails down Cave Mountain. Intermediate level terrain trails will add to the existing UCI World Cup downhill track. Also available at the bike park will be a pump track, bike rentals, and food/beverage.
