2023 Will be a year of Trail Planning for the Massnautten Western Slope Trails. Learn More
Day Pass or Annual Trail Pass?
Massanutten Western Slope offers over 32 miles of trail on over 800 mountainous acres, which is great for mountain biking and trail running. Much of the trail system was built and is maintained by the Coalition.
You MUST have a Massanutten Trail Pass to access it, and all cars at the parking lot must display their pass.
About the Western Slopes
Public-Private Partnership: 100% of trail pass fees go to support the Coalition, which builds, maintains, and expands this premier trail system. All annual pass holders are given the opportunity to choose between paying for a pass and donating at least eight hours of trail work to building these beautiful trails. However you obtain it, you WANT a pass, as it builds and sustains your riding trails.
Location: The Western Slope Property is private property that is owned by Massanutten Resort and sits just outside of Keezletown about 7 miles from Downtown Harrisonburg.
Season: Early January through roughly November 1st; the slopes are open for pass holders every day. For respect to regional hunters, from (approximately) November 1st to January 5th, the Western slope is closed every day except Sunday. *These dates change annually based on Virginia Hunting seasons.
Visit the Massanutten Resort: In addition to the Western Slope Property and associated trails system, Massanutten Resort offers a downhill bike park operating all summer long.
