Explorers Escape

Everybody is meant to move and here, you’re never too young, too old, too new, or too experienced to hike. There is a path for every person. At Blue Mountain, the Explore Park makes Nature the main attraction with a network of over 20 hiking, biking or multi use trails spanning the escarpment with a total of 30km ranging from beginner to advanced.

All of the trails are mapped and have clear signage to make exploring easy. An Explore All Day Pass provides Open-Air Gondola access and a trail pass. Cross-Country bike trail passes are also available, but bike access is not permitted on the gondola.

The possibilities to explore are endless and whether you’re doing it on-resort or venture into our incredible local area, we know that you’ll find freedom in the outdoors.

Fall Explorers Escape

Day 1
You check-in and receive all the information you need. Room key, Explore-All-Day Pass and information on how to access the Explore Park Map on your phone.

With your Explore-All-Day Pass, start the first day of your fall getaway surrounding yourself with the colours of the season with a fan favourite. Cascade is a picturesque trail that has you going up switchback paths that pop you out for some spectacular panoramic views. The trail gets its name from the cascading stream that runs the length of the trail. The winter melt fuels a waterfall at the summit which is best viewed in the spring and early summer. Cascade is also home to the Rainbow Bridge, Blue Mountain’s tribute to love, the beauty of diversity and strength of the human spirit.

This trail is for more advanced hikers, but the rewards are worth it. If you prefer to start your adventure from the top, your Explore-All-Day Pass includes Open-Air Gondola access that will take you 720 vertical feet to the top where you’ll find plenty of trails across the expanse of the escarpment.

You’ve definitely built up an appetite, so head back into the Village to find some dinner. You decide on Northwinds Brewery. The outdoor seating along the millpond provides an excellent vantage point of the escarpment. Bonus! It’s close to The North Face Store giving you the perfect excuse to pop in for some new gear.

Day 2

This morning, you awoke with the sun and headed to the Southern-most side of Blue Mountain at the bottom of the Grind, home of Apple Crusher. You found, much to your delight, that you aren’t the only one who traded sleeping in for some trail running. While catching your breath at the top, you wandered onto a trail that definitely piqued your interest – Agora Path of Light is a definite “must do” while you are at Blue.

You relax in the hotel hot tub before heading over to the Blue Mountain Inn for a filling breakfast at the Pottery Restaurant. It’s a nice little walk outside of the Village, but like most hidden treasures, it’s well worth it! To accommodate some digestion time, you decide to take a scenic ride up the Open- Air Gondola and a leisurely hike down Village Way. Rumour has it, you can get a great look at the Timber Challenge High Ropes, Canopy Climb Net Adventures and Wind Rider Triple Zips as you near the bottom of the trail, not to mention you’ll hear the hoots and hollers coming from guests riding the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster.

Now, it’s time to pack up a few staples from the Village Market before you head out to the Beaver Valley, just 20 minutes away, for a scenic paddle down the winding Beaver River with Free Spirit Tours. You can choose a canoe, kayak or paddleboard for your adventure. They offer rental packages and tours that cater to paddlers of all levels of experience and provide a safe, fun, and often educational paddle, that all ages can enjoy. While on the river, keep your eyes peeled for beavers, muskrats, minks, turtles, deer, and maybe even a rare river otter.

Once you are back on-resort, it’s time for a rest and refresh before heading out to dinner, followed by Agora Path of Light. What an incredible way to wind down your last evening at the Resort.


Check-out day, but you’re not quite ready to go home just yet. Last night you met some like minded explorers in the Village who are local to the area and love to Mountain Bike. You pack your car, head to the rentals building to get set up with a cross-country mountain bike. You meet at the bottom of the orchard for a home-grown tour of the Explore Park Bike Trails and some local single-track courtesy of your new friends.
