Cycling at Bear Mountain Lodge
Our cycling guests can take any number of half-day to full-day rides on their Road Bike or Mountain Bike directly from the Lodge. Prepare for the altitude and tailor your ride to any level of difficulty on miles of public access trails, including the Continental Divide Trail in the Gila National Forest.
Our breakfasts are tailored to our guests needs so they can make an early start and enjoy a full day, and our substantial portions will fuel you for a day of exploring on foot or on your bike. Outdoor water spigots and rags are available for use, as well as safe bicycle storage.
Historic Boston Hill trails, for walking, hiking or cycling, are 3 miles away in the middle of Silver City — as well, stop at a coffee house, restaurant, and do some shopping. Boston Hill offers 12 miles of trails winding in and around many of the old mines, offering spectacular views of town and the surrounding area. From the center of town, you can access Highway 180, Highway 90, and scenic NM Highways 15, 35, and 152.
We checked into the Bear Mountain Lodge – an inn outside of the main downtown grid. It's a super cool, rustic inn that we highly recommend! It was a beautiful oasis of Old New Mexico complete with a Mexican Day–Of–The–Dead art installation (the entire hotel is an art installation really), three horses, two standard poodles and four El Pollos de Pantalones (our name, not the genus or species). The inn keeper and owner, Linda, was outstanding. So was the breakfast spread every day! — Kristin Carpenter-Ogden, The Verde Voice
