The Sault Cycling Club believes in the power of trails to develop community. Our aim is to demonstrate that projects like the Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail are complementary to municipal parks and playground infrastructure—with outstanding benefits to everyone in the community. Our long-term vision is a city-wide network of accessible, interconnected trails, making active transportation (such as cycling and walking) a viable option for all residents, no matter where they live.
Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail - Project Update
November 8, 2022: The Sault Cycling Club is pleased to announce that the Finn Hill Mountain Bike Project is underway! The SCC has retained a new contractor - Transitions Bike Parks, Inc. They have broken ground and are in the initial phases of construction of the trail. Transitions will be working on the trail until winter comes and then will return in the spring to complete the project. We would like to thank all of our sponsors and supporters for your continued support, generosity and patience through this. Stay tuned to the SCC’s social media and emails for future updates. We can’t wait to pedal with you on this trail!
We're happy to announce that Pioneer Construction and Lyons Timber Mart have come on board as our Title Sponsors.
Thank you to the community for the strong support on this project!!! It could not happen without all of you. 🙂
We invite our friends and community minded partners to support this project that will bring safe and accessible mountain biking to the urban core of Sault Ste. Marie. The Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail will be a 2 to 3-km flow trail for off-road cycling. This professionally designed trail will use the natural contours of Finn Hill, adjacent to the Hub Trail, the P-Patch neighborhood and Northern Avenue, to create a superlative cycling experience.
We’re looking for your support to hire trail-building professionals! The machine-made trail will be constructed exclusively on city owned land that’s far more accessible to the public than existing mountain bike trails at Hiawatha Highlands. It will provide children, students and adults outstanding access to the Hub Trail and improve an integral travel corridor. The Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail is a great next step in Sault Ste. Marie’s emergence as one of Canada’s greatest “trail towns.”

All donations are appreciated regardless of the amount. Even the smallest donations add up and make a difference in the SCC’s ability to fulfill our mission to achieve this project to provide the community with an urban mountain biking experience. We hope to reach our goal of $150,000 by June 2022 in order to get the project underway this summer.
Donors will be recognized to encourage others to follow suit. We’ll also honor supporters who prefer to remain anonymous.
Purchase a Custom Stamped Coaster for $20
We aren’t all in a position to support the trails as a Title, Feature or Trail sponsor, so we have set up the perfect way for you to make a small contribution should you wish to.
You can support a meter of trail for just $20 which comes with a custom stamped coaster with the meter # of trail that you supported! This is a great gift idea or employee recognition incentive.
