Eurich Pond and Sugarbush Pond Trails – Mad River Riders
Eurich Pond and Sugarbush Pond Trails – current trail conditions on Trailforks
Access & Parking: Park at Sugarbush Resort at the top of the Access Rd. or the lower parking lot across from the Sugarbush Inn.
Eurich Pond Trail : Advanced – Tech: 3 Flow: 3
Follow Eurich Pond Rd. through the South Face condos. The signed trailhead is on the right. Next to a wet area is a rocky step-up entrance to the drier option, which parallels an old stone wall, before rejoining the wider route near Eurich Pond. This is a beautiful spot and primary access to several trails. Please be extra respectful here.
Geyer’s : Expert – Tech: 4 Flow: 3
This is best used as a downhill, especially first time. The top entrance is just south of the big Powerline junction at the bottom of Race and exits at the bottom below Eurich Pond.
Swell Hill: Intermediate/Advanced – Tech: 2 Flow: 5
This sweet flowy route makes lapping the upper Eurich Pond trails and connecting to Camel’s Hump State Forest – Chase Brook a lot more fun. Look for tons of cool features, a beautiful forest with large trees and some incredible stone work.
Race : Expert ** – Tech: 4 Flow: 3
Race is the left intersection at the top of Hell Hill. Stay left at the next intersection with Ridgie and Bitches Brew, then there are alternate lines on Race. Exits onto Powerline near the top of Guyer’s.
Ridgie : Advanced/Expert – Tech: 3 Flow: 4
After start of Race, go hard right at first intersection on to Ridgie, which winds along the ridge. There are alternate lines here, generally stay right to ride the entire trail. Pass under the power line and stay right at the next intersection to connect to Maple Twist, Misty Maple and the top of Tucker Hill Rd.
Bitches Brew : Expert+ ** – Tech: 5 Flow: 3
At the first intersection after the start of Race, take the middle route on to Bitches Brew. This trail has challenging rocks and tough bridges. It parallels Race and reconnects with it near the bottom.
Plum Line: Expert ** – Tech: 3 Flow: 3
Take first right after Eurich Pond. After first long descent, stay left, then a quick right across a wider trail intersection. (Uphill left is High Plum.) After a long section next to stone walls, stay left, climb a short hill, and then round the main shoulder to a long traverse under a main ridgeline, heading north. Turning southeast, it descends for an extended stretch, with stream crossings, alternate lines, jumps and drops. Exit at Sugarbush Pond on Route 100.
Pusherman: Expert+ ** – Tech: 4 Flow: 3
From the top of Hell Hill, stay straight on main trail, which will loop back right and soon under several very low sap lines; walk here, leave the lines alone and try to stay as dry as possible. Soon, the sap lines will end and the trail will start climbing steeply up a rocky ridge. From the top, a fun descent drops into the intersection of High Plum at a rock shoulder.
High Plum: Expert+ ** – Tech: 5 Flow: 3
Stay right at bottom of Pusherman. This trail has sidehill exposure, with wood and stone bridges, scope challenges before use. It contours generally downhill and then finishes fast on a wider trail. At an obvious off-set intersection, right goes up to Eurich Pond. Left is down Plum Line, near the longest rock wall section.
