Gunstock is a great mountain for family skiing and that atmosphere carries over to its summer camping and mountain biking. Miles of cross-country ski trails are turned over to fat-tire riders during the warm months.
The chapter loop gives a warm-up option of minimal physical or technical challenge. Other trails along the network, which Gunstock rates for difficulty, can make for a full day of riding. There's even a terrain garden with obstacles intended to test your bike handling skills. Trail Surface: Grass slopes, gravel roads, wide forest paths, and singletrack with rocks and roots.
