Whether you prefer to move on foot or two wheels, Snowbasin offers 26 miles of hiking and biking trails to explore in the summer. On weekends, ride Needles Gondola for a shortcut to the top.
It’s time to swap your ski boots for hiking boots. Hike up from the base of the mountain, or take Needles Gondola for a head-start, and hit our wide array of trails. We have three hiking-only trails that lead to the crest of the ridge for breathtaking views of the valley far below. Along the way, discover all our beautiful wildflowers, and put a name to a flower by grabbing a copy of our Common Wildflower Sheet at the top of Needles Gondola, or print one before you arrive.
Snowbasin Resort has more than 26 miles of trails that connect to even more Forest Service trails for nearly 50 miles of two-wheel fun. All our single-track trails are well maintained and wind through scenic groves of aspen and glades of pines. Snowbasin also offers gondola bike access for challenging uphill climbs and extreme downhill switchbacks. All levels of riding are available from the base and gondola-accessed trails. Novice and moderate trails are the perfect choice for a scenic family ride or mountainside picnic.
The use of electric bikes is allowed only within the Snowbasin Resort boundary, labeled on the summer trail map. Due to the weight of these bikes, guests must be able to load them onto Needles Gondola themselves without Snowbasin staff assistance. The US Forest Service has designated e-bikes as motorized vehicles and does not permit them on their trails outside Snowbasin Resort. These trails include Sardine Peak, Wheeler Canyon, East Fork, and Middle Fork. Please use caution if transitioning from Snowbasin Resort trails to US Forest Service Trails to adhere to USFS policies.View Trail Map
Have a bite, enjoy the view, and maybe even spot a moose. Take the beautiful 12-minute scenic ride up the Needles Gondola to Needles Lodge. At the top, dine at our grand buffet while enjoying a 360-degree view of the mountain and Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley below. And keep a lookout for moose and deer wandering around the resort enjoying a meal of their own.
