Sugar Mountain Resort’s decades old gravity and cross-country mountain biking and hiking trail system‘s much-anticipated expansion is underway.
Enlarging, widening, and upgrading the current mountain bike park, building out expert terrain to offer beginner and intermediate line option choices from the summit to the base, adding features like rollers, small dips, and table tops are just a few of the compliments slated for the summer season. As a result, please observe all signs and beware of construction.
Summit Express lift service for foot passengers and mountain bikers begins June 30.
Saturday, May 19 – Sunday, October 21, 2018
Miles of hiking and biking trails intertwine throughout the Village of Sugar Mountain and are accessible from many points throughout the Village and Sugar Mountain Resort. Daily trail access is free of charge from dawn until dusk.
Due to the trail expansion from May 19 through June 30 limited trail access is available.
Trail maps are available for download (4.5MB) or in a black, marked mailbox located at the base of Sugar Mountain’s Flying Mile slope. Trails are constantly being maintained so please be cautious and adhere to all signs. Also keep in mind that weather and other variables can change the condition of any trail. While riding a bike within the Village limits helmets are required.
