Project Update: In just over 2 months, we have reached nearly 50% of our fundraising goal. We’ve raised $70,000, and are so amazed with the strong community support we’ve received. With this support we’ve secured our spot on professional trail builders, Sentiers Boreals schedule for this Fall!!!! We’ve still got a long way to go to reach our goal… keep reading to find out how you can help!

The Sault Cycling Club (SCC) is excited to announce the start of our fundraising campaign to raise $150,000 for the Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail Project! 

We invite our friends and community minded partners to support this project that will bring safe and accessible mountain biking to the urban core of Sault Ste. Marie. The Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail will be a 3-km flow trail for off-road cycling. This professionally designed trail will use the natural contours of Finn Hill, adjacent to the Hub Trail, the P-Patch neighborhood and Northern Avenue, to create a superlative cycling experience.

We’re looking for your support to hire trail-building professionals in the summer of 2021. The machine-made trail will be constructed exclusively on city owned land that’s far more accessible to the public than existing mountain bike trails at Hiawatha Highlands. It will provide children, students and adults outstanding access to the Hub Trail and improve an integral travel corridor. The Finn Hill Mountain Bike Trail is a great next step in Sault Ste. Marie’s emergence as one of Canada’s greatest “trail towns.”

  • Share the campaign to friends and potential donors

CAMPAIGN GOAL      $150,000.00
RAISED TO DATE        $  70,400.45

All donations are appreciated regardless of the amount. Even the smallest donations add up and make a difference in the SCC’s ability to fulfill our mission to achieve this project to provide the community with an urban mountain biking experience. We hope to reach our goal of $150,000 by June 2021 in order to get the project underway this summer.

Donors will be recognized to encourage others to follow suit. We’ll also honor supporters who prefer to remain anonymous.

We aren’t all in a position to support the trails as a Title, Feature or Trail sponsor, so we have set up the perfect way for you to make a small contribution. You can sponsor a meter of trail for just $20. Each meter purchased will come with a custom stamped coaster. This is a great gift idea or employee recognition incentive. These will be available locally for purchase throughout our fundraising campaign at Algoma Bicycle, Feeding Your Soul Café, Outspoken Brewing and Vélorution Bike & Ski.
