Following the road that takes you through General Creek Campground, the Blue Trail is the gateway to the historic Red and Green trails of the 1960 Winter Olympic Biathlon. Blue diamonds nailed to pine trees mark your path through this 2.1-mile loop. Just follow the diamonds to stay on course.
Blue Trail is fairly flat and easy going, which makes it an ideal trail for all skill levels. Midway through the loop you'll find the trailhead for the Red Trail, which marks the start of the 1960 Olympic Biathlon. Shortly after this trail connection the path deviates into the forest and away from the campground, eventually connecting back to the starting point.
All winter trails at Sugar Pine Point are available for cross-country skiing, as well, and the park asks that snowshoers give skiers right-of-way and avoid walking in the established ski tracks. If you plan on exploring more of Sugar Pine, check out the Yellow and Orange trails as well.
Winter backcountry adventures can be dangerous outdoor activities that pose significant risks as conditions affecting safety (i.e. weather, snowpack stability, avalanche hazard) are constantly changing. Prior to engaging in these activities each individual should get the proper training to make safe decisions and be equipped to use avalanche safety resources and tools.
