Sunday River Bike Park Overview
Sunday River Mountain Bike Park offers the perfect downhill mountain bike playground for all levels of riders. Whether you’re still learning how to mountain bike on downhill trails, or searching for steep terrain to push your limits, you'll find 25 trails offering over 20 miles of beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain.
Sunday River's terrain is best suited for intermediate and advanced riders, but with the addition of the Mountain Bike School and its pump track for new or beginner riders, anyone interested in taking their skills up a "gear" is welcome.
Intermediate riders can choose between moderate single track options, slick rock, and even jump lines and flow trails. Options in the park really open up for advanced riders with plenty of technical single track, steep downhill trails, and manufactured terrain options. Over the last few years the park crew has been hard at work adding new trails and creating machine-built terrain including jumps, berms, and flow trails, and adding log and bridge work. Check out the footage and photos here for a taste of what the park has to offer. If you haven't visited Sunday River for a few years, now's the time to come back and find out what you've been missing. The bike park is serviced by Sunday River's Chondola lift, which provides high-speed access to a trail network that covers the North Peak and South Ridge areas of the resort, with longer trails branching out from the primary trail network. In addition to downhill terrain, the park also offers a selection of trails suitable for cross-country riding.
If you haven't visited the bike park in a couple years, you'll be stoked to find new and rebuilt trails including an ever-increasing assortment of man-made and freestyle terrain.
Recent enhancements to the Sunday River Bike Park include:
A new pump track, located in the South Ridge base area on the Sundance trail, which features a closed circuit training area full of man-made dirt rollers and berms.
The new cross-country loop, also near the South Ridge base area, provides a perfect spot for the resort’s new mountain bike school.
