Sugar Mountain Resort Overview
Sugar Mountain is closed for the 2015 summer season due to construction but will return in May of 2016.
Sugar Mountain Resort offers over 20 miles of maintained single and double track cross country and downhill trails for mountain bikers. And that doesn't include their "National Expert Downhill Trail" which delivers 1,200 feet of vertical, and a handful of jumps and creek crossings along the way.
Their Gray chairlift, which provides gravity junkies a ride to the top, is one of the longest in North Carolina. While the resort has plenty to entertain the entire family, it would be good to note that most of the trails at Sugar are multi-use, hiking and biking trails, so keep an eye out if you happen to be rippin' down the trail.

Was so excited to ride a chair lift for the first time with my bike instead of my skis. When we arrived the resort appeared closed. This could possibly be the first season the resort is offering MTB riding. There were no signs or directions where to go or information on mountain bike riding. It looked like a closed ski resort. We went around back and finally found some employees sitting under a tent at the bottom of the lift. They were very helpful but limited in the knowledge of the trails. We rode the lift up and met 2 more employees. They cautiously removed our bikes from the lift and had them ready when we arrived. They could not offer any information or direction except to tell us to avoid Donovan's Dungeon. We proceeded blind down toward the areas that could possibly be trails but no paths or even previous rider tire tracks.There was NO signage anywhere. Was disappointed with our first trip to Sugar Mountain to bike ride even though it appears to have the potential to be an epic ride in the future.
