Mountain Biking Safety

Cyclists, like all mountain users, should always be alert to the risks inherent in their sport. Responsible behavior and good judgment are essential for you to safely enjoy mountain biking at Jiminy. 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 waterbars, 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.  A first-aid kit should be carried at all times, sufficiently stocked to treat cuts, sprains and bruises, the typical mountain bike injuries. Sunscreen, insect repellent and plenty of water are also recommended.

The mountain is not patrolled and even a minor mishap can turn serious if you are stranded.  A helmet is mandatory when riding at Jiminy Peak.  Know your riding ability and do not try to exceed it.
