The Algoma Highlands offers year-round recreational pursuits including world class cross country ski opportunities, mountain biking, hiking, trail running, as well as more leisurely and artistic activities such as nature photography, painting and bird-watching. To dramatically increase public use of our conservation forest, we partnered up with the Sault Cycling Club (saultcyclingclub.ca) and Sault College to construct the mountain bike trail system.
The AHC strives to engage more people from local and surrounding communities in physical activity by offering a variety of self-propelled opportunities on the property. We hope that our efforts will help connect people to the natural environment and encourage respect and appreciation of the natural features and diverse ecosystems in the region.
This singletrack trail is a phenomenal addition to local x-country mountain biking. Please be aware that there’s some serious climbing involved in the single track loop so be prepared to push your bike on some sections. The double track recommendations offer a more leisurely bike ride.
To get started, park in the main parking lot at Stokely creek resort (WARNING: DO NOT drive your car past the gate, as you might get locked in!). Ride your bike past the gate on the main lodge road, heading towards the main lodge. Climb home run hill on your left, before the lodge. You’ll go up it and part way down before you need to turn in on the doubletrack to your right at ski signpost #10 / bike marker #2. The first section of singletrack is almost immediately on your left.
Trail conditions change all the time so be aware and ride responsibly!
For more info on the trail please contact Jennifer Cross at the Algoma Highlands Conservancy.
The AHC sincerely thanks Bob Sinclair for the time and expertise he dedicated to developing the trail maps.
