Top to bottom gravity flow trail at Spirit Mountain.

Leslie Kehmeier

Overview

Candyland is downhill travel only.
Spirit Mountain, located in Duluth, MN, is quickly becoming the epicenter of lift-accessed gravity riding in the Upper Midwest.

The trails on the mountain are lift-accessed with services running in the summer. Check the spiritmtbike.com/">Spirit Mountain website for details about operating hours and mountain bike services.

Need To Know

downhill only

Description

Coming off the lift, turn left to drop down Wrecking Ball (Black diamond / Advanced) or to keep it easier turn right and head down the ski run on the doubletrack. If you are coming down the doubletrack, take the first right. Watch out on your right for riders dropping out of Wrecking Ball!
Ride uphill along the Adventure Park lot, the start of the trail is just before the road gate, on your left.

Let gravity pull you in here with some mellow rollers and banked trail that gets progressively faster and bigger. The grade is on the softer side through here.

As the features get slightly more intense, so does the grade. There's an exciting and quick series of berms that lead down to an intersecting dirt road.

The bottom portion of Candyland builds on the top. The berms are deeper and the speed is faster. Depending on your skill level you'll be linking features together by rolling through or floating through the air.

At the bottom, take a left and recover as you pedal back to the lift for another run!

History & Background

Candyland was made possible by IMBA Trail Solutions, COGGS and Spirit Mountain Ski Area. The trail was constructed during IMBA Flow Trail School in 2012 that drew talented trail builders from around the country to learn flow trail design and construction techniques.
