The Evolution Bike Park at Mount Sunapee debuted its lift-accessed mountain biking in 2015 and has been continuing to develop a fun network of trails to suit riders ranging from first-timers to those with more advanced skills. If you have a newbie looking to experience lift-served single-track downhill mountain biking, Mount Sunapee would be a great pick.
“We want the Evolution Bike Park to be a place where we can introduce everyone to downhill mountain biking, which is why our first trail was an easier, family-friendly trail," says Dave Keaveny, adventure park manager.
The resort offers more than 4 miles of downhill mountain biking, plus, a full-fledged Adventure Park with ziplines, climbing walls, mini golf and more.
Mount Sunapee hosts tons of events through the summer months but nothing quite beats the beauty of riding in the fall. The mountain becomes a firestorm of reds, oranges and yellows as the foliage changes colors.
The Evolution Bike Park operates out of the Snowsports Shop in the Sunapee Lodge. The shop offers bike accessories, as well as summer apparel, winter sale items, disc golf supplies, Mount Sunapee logo wear and souvenirs.

Went to the mountain and had a great time riding the mountain bikes that we rented.
Bikes and safety gear were perfect and we couldn't have asked for a more friendly staff and downhill courses that were both easy and challenging.
Kids as young as 8 on the course which shows the beginner runs. My family was 2 boys, ages 14 and 16 along with my wife and myself.
We'll definitely return for another afternoon of biking!
