Open per Sugar Mtn Bike Park hours. One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Description

This is the main trail at Sugar Mountain, off of which all other trails can be accessed. It begins at the top where the chairlift ends. The entire trail consists of a series of fast and wide berms and switchbacks, with some fast, grassy, flat turns about halfway down prior to re-entering the woods. Speed is only limited by the rider's ability.

Towards the top after the first series of berms, there is a long rocky doubletrack with several shallow tabletops. This trail does not have any obstacles or drops per se, but there are several tricky pump areas interspersed with the berms. The overall experience is taxing just due to the speeds attainable and the unrelenting berms.

While you could ride the brakes all the way down without crashing, this isn't really a trail for actual beginners, but more an intermediate trail in terms of intensity/speed. This is a good trail to get a taste of downhill mountain biking for those who haven't tried it before or who normally ride in flatter areas.
