Mountain Biking at Hiawatha Highlands

Mountain (2)

Hiawatha Highlands

The Sault Cycling Club’s home trails are at Hiawatha Highlands where we maintain the single track trail system. Thousands of volunteer hours have gone into creating and maintaining this diverse trail system. Our single track trail systems are all on private land in which we maintain permission for the existing trail networks. Continued permission for use of the properties for mountain biking is a privilege that must be maintained through responsible maintenance and use of the trails.

Although a membership is not required to ride our trails we do encourage it.
If you choose not to become a member, please consider making a donation to our trails instead. ❤️

Trail Systems

With over 40km of trail, and more being added each year, Hiawatha Highlands has something for everyone! We've got riding options from easy to expert, cross country, enduro and trail riding. Come check out what we have to offer!!


Myles to Go - Skills Loop

Refinished in the summer of 2023, this short trail is full of small rollers, berms, jumps and two small wooden features to finish it off. (1-2 km)


For a twisty and tight trail good for beginner-to-more-experienced riders, head out onto the Pinder. The terrain is generally level with no sustained climbs or descents but there is some fun flow! (5 km)

Red Pine

The Red Pine trails have easier, intermediate and difficult sections. It has many different loops you can take depending on how long you want to ride. The trails paralleling Fifth Line are on a relatively flat bench.  The trails to the south (e.g., Holiday, Rabbit Run) are below the bench and have significant descending/climbing. (14 km)

Crystal Creek

The terrain is rolling with some challenging up-hills and downhills. New in 2022/2023, the Crystal Creek system is now full of many machine built flow trails! If you’re an intermediate to advanced cross-country rider, these trails are well worth the travel! (km)


Farmer Lake

Navigate up the rocky Climb to Canyon section, a new modern flow XC trail that is a fun test of your technical skills. With your heart pumping hard from climbing the almost 50 m hill you’ll then be met by the many berms and hairpin turns of Farmer Lake trail. Finally, you’ll descend to reach the beautiful oasis that is lake the trail is named after. (3.5 km to get to the lake)

Swamp Donkey

Newly built in 2023! Continue on past Farmer Lake and experience some amazing views, giant berms and the Super Happy Fun Bowl!

To finish off this loop you'll need to ride approx. 3-4 km on a double track snowmachine trail until the loop is finished 🙂


Crazy Train

An adventurous and aptly named downhill trail which has enough vertical to keep any adrenalin junky interested.

Rated black diamond.

Once Bitten Twice Shy

Check out our newest techy, flowy, feature rich black diamond trail in the Farmer Lake System. It starts at the top of Kickstart my Heart and exits to Connor Rd (halfway between the parking lot and start of the Farmer Lake Trail).
