Spirit Mountain Overview
Spirit Mountain Bike Park is a two-time Top Five winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Midwest Region. It took some time, but Spirit Mountain is now a contender in the lift-served downhill mountain biking scene. Featuring manicured midwest flow sculpted by IMBA trail solutions, Spirit Mountain has come in at #2 two years running in the Midwest according to riders who voted in the MTBparks.com Best Bike Parks Riders' Choice survey.
A little history about Spirit Mountain and its lift accessed bike park
As part of a master planning process that began in 2008, two new downhill mountain bike trails were finally added at Spirit Mountain last summer. The new additions are Candyland, a 1.5 mile beginner/intermediate downhill flow trail and Smorgasboard, a 1 mile intermediate freeride/downhill mountain bike trail.
The site of the new flow trail was home to a Flow Trail School hosted by IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) and COGGS (Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores) in September 2012. About 30 people from around the country attended the school to learn skills and techniques for building these types of trails. The school was led by Aaron Rogers, IMBA Midwest Trail Specialist, who has officially declared this to be, “the best flow trail in the Midwest.” Additionally, Adam Sundberg, chairman of COGGS, says, “Everybody is blown away by how great the trail is looking. It’s so much fun, so creative, so well-done.”
What type of riders would enjoy visiting Spirit Mountain Bike Park?
Spirit Mountain's trails are predominantly machine built modern bike park trails with lots of flow to be found. Our soil is mostly clay or bedrock making for fun flow trails and great rock features. Trails start out tacky in the spring, turn into fast hard packed ribbons of clay during the summer and then back to tacky in the fall as it cools down. All styles and types of riders will be able to find something for them to enjoy.
Is there a trail system beyond the bike park?
Though Spirit Mountain does not have a trail system beyond our gravity trails there are a wide variety of cross country trail systems in town the best resource to find these is the local bike club's website: http://wp.coggs.com/
What's the big news at the Spirit Mountain Bike Park for 2015?
The crew at Spirit Mountain recently finished the expert only trail "Calculated Risk" built by Trail Solutions. This trail features the park's biggest and gnarliest terrain yet.
