“An incredibly fun loop to guide you through the majority of the trails at Sugar Hollow Park.”— Anthony D.

Need to Know
At the midpoint of this ride, you'll come out on the main throughway in the park - Sugar Hollow Rd. You'll turn right then an immediate left. The next trail - Fox Trot - will start just behind the picnic shelter by the wooden bridge. Again, once you get onto this trail, there will be many trail intersections and you may need to consult this map.
There is very little signage within the park and the number of trail intersections can make the ride a bit confusing at first. Once you're familiar with the park, mainly the loop here, you can start to connect some of the additional trails that are offered. There are no real beginner trails here, but most everything is blue-level riding. There are a couple of steep climbs, but they are rideable and are worth the effort. The majority of the trails follow the terrain's contours and have excellent flow with lots of elevation changes and optional trail features.
History & Background
The park has around 75 campsites, free wifi, a kids playground, baseball fields, picnic shelters and frisbee golf. The local chapter - SORBA Tri-Cities - has been helping with trail construction and connectivity within the park. The trails are a spiderweb with several extensions that end up on main roads within the park. The chapter is currently working with the city to create fewer trail intersections and a more cohesive loop for a better riding experience.
