Play the Day Away at Cranmore

Couple standing with bikes in tall grass pointing at mountain view

Cranmore is the ultimate basecamp for all your summer adventures—whether your crew is looking to zip down hills at our mountain bike park, play their hearts out in our adventure park or just marvel at the views of Mt. Washington Valley from the scenic chairlift—there’s something for everyone. 

Follow our sample itinerary for the perfect day at Cranmore, packed full of family-friendly fun.

10 am - Kick-start your day with a morning ride

Get outside first thing to enjoy Cranmore’s different biking options. For the more experienced riders, check out the Bike Park, which offers over six miles of downhill, lift-accessed bike trails. For those interested in something a bit more laid back, we recommend pedaling along the MWV Rec Path and taking in all the surrounding nature.

1 pm - Lunch with a view

After your biking escapade, hop on the seven-minute scenic chairlift to the summit of Cranmore Mountain. Once you’re at the top, stop by the Meister Hut for lunch, where you can order summer favorites like chicken fingers, ice cream, grilled cheese, pretzels, beer and wine. As you dig in, admire breathtaking views of the Valley from the sunny, panoramic deck.

3 pm - More memory-making at the Mountain Adventure Park

With a full belly and a second wind, ride back down the chairlift to the Mountain Adventure Park. Jump into an afternoon full of all kinds of activities and rides—including classic favorites like our Mountain Coaster, Giant Swing, Soaring Eagle Zip Ride and more. Look into our Last Blast Pass, which grants guests admission to the park from 3–5 pm as well as access to the scenic chairlift.

Next, unwind from your busy day with early cocktails or craft beers at Koessler’s Bar and Deck, Alpine Café and Bar or Fairfield Inn Lobby Bar—all of which are conveniently located at or near the base of the mountain.

6:30 pm - Keep it local for dinner

Head into North Conway for a mouthwatering dinner from one of the local hotspots, like Chef’s Bistro, Delaney’s Hole in the Wall or Flatbread Pizza.
