We don't just change seasons,
we change gears...

Looking for a fun and adventurous way to take in the fresh mountain air and beautiful views?

Biking at Schweitzer has something for you.  Whether you're a downhill junky, cross country fanatic or just looking for a fun outing on the mountain.

We offer over 40 miles of trails at Schweitzer - Start in our village and warm your legs up as you head out to Picnic Point to take in the sweeping views of the mountains and Lake Pend Oreille. From there, your options are wide open. For those looking for a downhill thrill, Schweitzer has many intermediate to expert options. All downhill trails begin at the top of the Great Escape Quad and descend 1700' to the Schweitzer Village. Ready for more vertical? Use the Highpoint Trail to connect Schweitzer to the Selkirk Recreation District trail system for 4000 vertical feet of fun single track all the way to the valley.
