The new year is off to a hot start with more new mountain bike trail openings! We started tracking monthly trail openings in June of last year, and in the last six months of 2019 we counted 63 new trails. Stay tuned to find out how many new trails are added in 2020.

Sweetwater Regional Park (Bonita, California): While mountain bikers have been enjoying the trails at Sweetwater Regional Park for many years now, on January 4 a new $1.9M bike park was added with a jump line, pump track, skills area, and new flow trails.

Devil’s Den (San Antonio, Texas): On January 12 the South Texas Off Road Mountain Bikers (STORM) officially opened a new half mile trail in an area known as Devil’s Den.

Bike Glendhu (Wanaka, New Zealand): This privately-supported bike park was designed and built by Elevate Trail Building and Dirt Dynamics, and features trails for all abilities. The park boasts about 35km of trails with 450m of vert separating the high and low points. Shuttles are available.

Little Sugar Creek (Bella Vista, Arkansas): Mountain bike trail building in Northwest Arkansas shows no signs of slowing down, with the latest massive trail system opening this month. Little Sugar Creek features 45 miles of mostly machine-built trails and will eventually connect with the popular Back 40 trail network.
