A quick run down of some of the mountain bike trails in Morzine.
The best known MTB trail in Morzine is the Pleney downhill course sporting a vertical drop of 560m over a distance of 3.25 kms. This is a purpose built downhill course and is rated black. This and some other runs have choices between “facile” (easy) and “difficile” (difficult!) routes; take the latter only if you’re confident and have been riding within your ability level so far. But don’t make this your first run of the holiday, opt for one of the gentler runs down from the Pleney télécabine criss-crossing the hill to flatten the gradient.
Look out for a refreshment stop at d’Atray followed by the advanced super technical trail down the Atray gulley or the slightly less hair raising roller coaster ride. A more pedal oriented run will take you to the Grand Pre after negotiating “Heart Attack Hill” and onwards back to Morzine via the Lievre and Retour des Nants pistes. From the Super Morzine side of the valley try the Morzine switchbacks, generally super fast with a few technical sections in there for variety.
You can now also ride around 350km of trails dedicated specifically to electric mountain bikes, made up of 3 green trails, 9 blues, 11 reds and 1 black trail.
