Auburn Bike Park

The Auburn Bike Park is located on 9 acres overlooking the scenic American River Canyon. The park is designed for riders of all abilities and ages, helping to build skills while having fun! ARD partnered with world-renowned trail builder and local, Randy Spangler and our local nonprofit, the Auburn Trails Alliance, to design and build the park.

The park is free and open daily from dawn to dusk as weather and trail conditions allow.



This two-way trail is for all skill levels connecting riders between the parking lot and the strider/pump track. This trail offers great practice on switchback turns!

This advanced trail is a steep shortcut to the starting mound of the pump track. Built and opened during the Great Pandemic of 2020!

Designed for riders under the age of 5 who are learning to ride, often on a bike without pedals so they can learn to balance first. 

This pump track will get your heart pumping! Featuring a series of rollers/mounds and banked turns (aka “berms”), the pump track is designed to help riders improve their bike handling skills by “pumping” with their arms and legs through the course without pedaling. The course is designed to be ridden twice and in two directions. 

Named in honor of the dreaded plant for which this trail was previously covered in, this trail is a two-parter with a split personality. The upper section is more advanced with rocks to test your technical prowess. Just after the fire road crossing, the trail mellows out and is great for beginner riders, settling into a rock-free flow trail that shoots riders towards the pump track. 

At quarter-mile of rollercoaster-like fun! This trail provides the full spectrum of mountain biking experience, featuring table tops, a gap jump and other punchy jumps. Designed for intermediate to advanced riders.

The dual slalom is located near the parking lot and features rollers and bermed turns designed to test one’s gravity and speed. This is an ADVANCED course due to its steepness (at a 12% grade) and challenging rollers. This track allows for two riders at a time to race to the bottom or take a more leisurely approach and gap as many doubles as you can! Intermediate riders may ride at reduced speeds. Make sure seat posts are down for this course!

These are “quiet” communities and we want to stay good neighbors.
