Awesome trail! Lots of flow and chunk. Ride Newton's up, and Oak Knoll down.

Good climbing trail. Not sure how it would be going down though - tight corners and very few features

Two cool rock features, but a very pedally downhill with tight corners

Quick flat turns in the straight aways and flat berms made it tough to carry speed. If you change those flat s-curve turns into gap jumps and add some dirt to the berms on the 180 degree corners, this trail gets wayyy better.

This loop is well worth doing if you make it to the top of hurricane. One thing worth noting, trailforks shows it going in a clockwise direction, however the "one way" signage contradicts this. I'm assuming they want you to ride it counter clockwise.

A nice windy beginner trail that you can get some decent speed on!

VERY rocky. If you like tech, this is your kind of trail.

Really glad I went and hit Widowmaker, great little natural and tough trail. Bear Trail was the highlight of the whole ride, absolutely amazing. I don't think coming down Newton's Revenge is worth it. It had a few little pieces of awesome trail, but it was mostly too fast double track (losing elevation without the fun). Lap Bear Trail twice and then descend Oak Knoll instead.

Extremely amazing. Just built so perfect and so fast and so satisfying. I should have looped this twice.

I climbed up this one and descended Newton’s, whoops. Trailforks data has a 50/50 split of people climbing and descending this! Even the suggested routes here all climbed but didn’t descend this. Next time I’d descend Oak Knoll and climb Newton’s. Who knows, might also be kinda jank.

I think I should have climbed this instead of descended. There were two or three AMAZING machine built sections but they were ohhhh so short and the rest seems to be an old logging road.

Nice New England tech descent, with some sweet poppers and fast rocky berms. Keep your speed up or you won't clear the little doubles

If you are wondering whether the extra loop is worth it once you're done climbing hurricane, keep going ! Super nice loop up top and drops you into hurricane with extra speed.

Great rocky descent, make sure you have a lot of air in your tires and lungs! This one hurts if you start to get lazy.

Machine built sections were fast, flowy and smooth. On my way up I tried a few of the sections as downhills just to get a taste of the speed. I used this trail primarily to get up to the hut (which is full service for most of the year incidentally). Had a coffee and a beer and came down Oak Knoll. Next time I'll probably try the reverse, rocky technical up Oak and then flowy fast down Newton's, i think you can't lose either way.

Rockier and more feature laden then most other trails in this area. Only did as a descent, and it was good in this direction. "Expert" marked rock ride was a treat, wished there were more! There were a few rocks that would be probably best treated as drops, so keep an eye out. A nicely built trail, but still had a natural freeride feel.

Nice free-ride type trail, with rock jumps, rock features, berms and more. Access is from very mellow smooth singletrack so dont be mistaken, it turns into a challenging and technical descent. Definitely had the toughest features from what i explored at sugarloaf.
