Mountain Biking Sugarloaf Mountain Bike Area

****   Add a review
#90 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#3,401 in the world

Sugarloaf Mountain Bike Area is a series of 3 loops that can be combined to create trips of varying lengths and difficulties. The trails are well-marked and wide, with only few rocky and muddy sections. A beginner will find the climbs challenging and the descents fun, especially the loop nearest the sledding area. An intermediate rider will want to combine two or more loops, especially the loop around Sugarloaf itself which has the biggest climbs and descents.

Getting there
Route 381 runs right through Ohiopyle. Sugarloaf Road is opposite the boat launch area, right next to the Boater's Change House. If you go over a bridge (in either direction) you've gone too far. The Mountain Bike Area is a few miles out of town, on the right. If you pass the little chapel and cemetery, you've gone too far.

    Cross country skiing trails were nice flow, and the Canyon Ridge trail was basically a giant rock garden. Not many features, but fun nonetheless. Do not be like me and try the Canyon Ridge trail on a hardtail.

    Long gradual descents that are mostly made up of large rocks. Not a bad trail, very long and challenging climb.

    Great xc ride to add to your trip if you're in town for 7 Springs DH park. Camped at the Laurel Highlands. Rode a few miles here and a few miles there. The trails are pretty awesome. True mountain singletrack. Lots of climbs, rocks, roots, and balls out downhill runs. Came across a few sections of trail that were extremely steep.

    Rode the three loops today. Excellent downhill section on Sugarloaf Trail. Lots of rocks on descent but very navigable. Lots of steep climbs. Technical section off of Braghnam Trail. This trail starts at the scenic overlook area. Go left to descend and right to hit the technical section and back to Sugarloaf Trail. Not a beginner's trail.
