Description

“Discover how fun mountain biking can be on this easy beginner trail,” writes Mammoth Mountain. "Smooth trail surfaces and limited terrain features make this the ideal trail for the first timer to expand on the skills learned on the Pioneer Practice Loop.”

The Discovery Trail helps anchor the Discovery Zone, which Mammoth claims is “the best place to learn in the country. It is the only area on the mountain dedicated 100% to progression for riders of all ages. With 3 beginner trails, an intermediate trail, a Skills Park and a beginner-friendly lift, the learning experience at Mammoth is beyond compare. Smooth trails, berms lined with cement pavers and gradual slopes are what to expect in this truly extraordinary area that is perfect for riders of all abilities.”
