Sun Mountain Lodge
A quick jaunt from Winthrop on Twin Lakes Road will take you to the turn-off to the famous Sun Mountain Lodge. From there it is about 6 miles up of fairly steep, but not too long climbs to the summit at the lodge that are excellent for road biking. On the way, pass by Patterson Lake and take in the fields of arrowleaf balsamroot flowers in the spring on Patterson Mountain. At the lodge each season offers visitors a unique bouquet of activities and environments to experience and enjoy, from cross country skiing and snowshoeing to hiking, biking and horseback riding. Winter and warm-weather rentals are available, ranging from cross country skiis and snowshoes, to mountain bikes and boating equipment.
