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. Fivecolor-coded trails range from one to three miles long. The biathlon and cross-country (XC) events of the VIII Winter Olympics 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.
California State Parks will be hosting a series of special events honoring our Olympic Heritage (the Nordic events occurred on park property in 1960). Please visit our website for more information on events.
