Evolution Bike Park at Mount Sunapee

The Adventure Park is now a full-service, lift access mountain bike center, with full suspension Scott® bike rentals, lesson programs, trail patrol and mechanical support.  Our new mile-long downhill "flow" trail winds its way down from the summit of South Peak.  The "Dirt Serpent" is designed to be family friendly with plenty of berms, plus has optional jumps and terrain to challenge more advanced riders.  The "Sidewinder" trail introduces more difficult terrain with jumps, wooden bridges and rock gardens throughout, plus, B-lines incase you need to "down shift" a bit.  All trails in the Evolution Bike Park are single-track.

"Rock This Way", offers an expert only single-track experience.  This trail will test the mettle of even the best riders with large drop-offs, elevated bridges, huge berms and giant jumps. You'll find Pat's Park on this trail that gives you several lines to pick, or perhaps, find your own!  "Flo-motion" is our latest trail to open and is built for those who enjoy lots of berms that flow from one to the other. This trail is the next step up in difficulty from "Dirt Serpent", and rounds out our trail system with a smooth single track experience.  The Evolution Bike Park trail system consists of nearly five miles of downhill mountain biking excitement!
