Bernex Mountainbike Park

Berrnex has set up a bike park (supervised by patrollers) on a 400m gradient. You will come across a lot of MTB champions who come here to train!

The Bike Park has 5 different tracks and a drop zone: ride down to the Bernex Tourist Office and pick up a map.

Different Trails for Different Levels

  • VTT-BERNEX-2

    A Green Run

    Try out this very easy track for beginners, steering is easy and accessible to everyone. Perfect for learning downhill MTB skills.

    The track is wide and easy riding with a very gentle slope without any crossfall.

    The green run is the longest in the Bike Park and beginners will love it and experts who love to play about on the terrain will love it too!

    The Blue Run (Bern'Land)

    This run has been totally reshaped as a Jump Line and it keeps its Blue level: an easy track that requires basic steering skills.

    It has a slight to average slope gradient, the main trail has some easy jump modules and some off-line jump modules for more experienced riders.

  • vtt-bernex-piste-rouge

    A Back Country Red Run (off piste)

    This is a difficult downhill trail, which requires good steering skills.

    A wide trail on natural non-worked terrain, which has been bordered and made safe. The slope can be very steep in places. Riders are free to go wherever they want and to ride side by side: it’s pure freeride making use of the Bike Park’s entire downhill gradient!

  • VTT_BERNEX-3

    Two Black Runs

    The River Creek

    This is a very difficult trail that requires expert steering. The slope gradient ranges from average to very steep with jump modules and a freeride zone.

    The focus is on steering skills. Despite that, it is a very fluid and fun trail!

    The Wood Roots

    This is a very difficult trail, requires expert steering. The slope gradient ranges from average to steep with lots of consecutive fluid freestyle jumps from start to finish.

    The Wood Roots is the trail in the Bike Park where the rider is very often in the air!

  • drop-zone-vtt-bernex

    The Drop Zone

    The place to be for that full-on adrenalin rush and Bernex MBP freestyle mania.

    It suits all levels from beginners to experts. There are several jump lines with different and evolutive levels.

    On its 300m length and 20 to 50m width you will discover a dozen modules set-up in harmony with the terrain’s profile and exactly what riders are looking for.

    Access

    Access the Bike Park by taking the Pré Richard chairlift, open daily from 29th June to 31st August, 10:00 am – 5:30 pm.

Cross-country

The Pays d’Évian-Vallée d’Abondance is a French Cycling Federation MTB site. You have the choice between forest tracks, trails and communal routes for mountainbikers to ride in the bucolic Alpine meadows or on more physically demanding trails across the entire Gavot Plateau.

You don’t have an electric-assisted MTB? Don’t panic! The Évian-Bernex shuttle bus takes bikes and is a great tip for coming up from the lake.

A free map is available at the reception desk at the Bernex Tourist Office.
