Mountain Biking Safety at West Mountain
Cyclists, like all mountain users, should always be alert to the risks inherent in the sport. Responsible behavior and good judgment are essential for you to safely enjoy mountain biking at West Mountain. Remember that the mountain environment poses potential hazards. Rocks, logs and other natural and man-made obstacles may be encountered suddenly and without warning. Be especially careful of water bars, which are ditches or mounds placed throughout the mountain to control erosion. They may be visible or hidden by grass and should be approached slowly and cautiously. We will have ski patrol on duty during business hours, but we ask our patrons to be alert at all times.

Know your riding ability and do not try to exceed it. If in doubt, you can always walk your bike. Do not stop where you obstruct a trail or cannot be seen by other mountain users.
