Sugar Pine Point State Park

Whether your passion is being on skis or on snowshoes, the park offers trails for both experienced and beginning enthusiasts. Five color-coded trails range from one to three miles long. The biathlon and cross-country (XC) events of the VIII Winter Olympics in 1960 were held in what is now Ed Z’berg Sugar Pine Point State Park. The General Creek Trail (Red Trail) takes you on a loop through the heart of the men’s events. Here you travel with the spirit of the games on the trails of the biathlon and men’s cross-country ski events. The blue, red, and green trails are scheduled to be machine-groomed twice per week. The yellow and orange trails are skier packed. $10 per vehicle parking fee; use of ski trails is free.
 
California State Parks will be hosting a series of special events honoring our Olympic Heritage between January 11-19, 2014, as well as full moon snowshoe tours in January, February, and March. Our website will be updated with schedules of winter events at
