      Nestled deep within the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, the Sugarcamp Mountain Trail system is a multi-use (mountain bike primary) facility created by volunteers through a joint effort by Jenny Wiley State Resort Park and the city of Prestonsburg. Sugarcamp includes 20 miles of hand-carved, technical singletrack dedicated to mountain biking. There are an additional ~6 miles of horse-friendly, machine-built trail which provides spectacular views of Dewey Lake and the surrounding area.

      Trail difficulty varies (and is indicated at all trailheads), but at least an intermediate skill set is required to navigate all trails within the property.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
