Riding:

Jiminy Peak is tucked away in the Berkshires offering riders a very friendly village with lots of riding and family activities. Jiminy Peak operates 2 lifts servicing mid-mountain riding through the week and full mountain riding with an express lift to the top on the weekends and holidays. Jiminy offers riders about 1100ft of elevation with many trails for experts and intermediate riders.

The best time we found to go is on weekends when the lift to the top is running.  You can ride next to their windmill and see just how big it really is.

Jiminy has a fun mix of steep terrain intermixed with some single track.  The runs from the top will keep you on your toes and each offer a little unique way to get down in terms of steepness, turns, and off camber terrain.  Most all of the runs are natural downhill style and wood is rare, but does occur in some places where needed.  Drops aren’t abundant but if you like riding technical trails down a good gradient, Jiminy is a fun place to hit and for a good price.  Trails G, H, and I offer the most amount of vertical drop and are pretty steep and fun!  Trail D is a good warmup and has lots of fun sections in it.

As mentioned before Jiminy is very family oriented with a quaint village and lots of activities besides just riding. They offer a mountain coaster, alpine slide, and giant swing for those looking for big thrills. They also have other challenging activities like a rock wall, rope adventures, and hiking trails. For those that like to take it more easy they have some nice recreational bike riding areas, mini-golf, and chairlift rides. If you need to rent a bike check out the Bike and Board shop in the village for rental options.
