E-bike rentals, additional hiking terrain, and an 18-hole alpine disc golf course top list of what’s new

June 20, 2017

Newry, Maine (June 20, 2017) - Sunday River Resort will celebrate summertime in the Western Mountains of Maine with the opening of its Mountain Park on Thursday, June 29, 2017.

New this summer, electronic bike rentals, additional hiking trails, and an 18-hole alpine disc golf course add to an already extensive list of Mountain Park fun, including 20 miles of downhill mountain biking, a six-line zipline tour, a climbing wall and bungee trampoline, and scenic lift rides to the top of the resort's North Peak. 

 With a little planning, resort guests can time their trip to the Mountain Park to coincide with one of the many weekend events planned. Home to The River Rock Festival on July 8-9, the Tough Mountain Challenge on July 29, the new Maine Brew Fest on September 8-10, and annual North American Wife Carrying Championship on October 7, the fun goes from late June until Columbus Day Weekend. 

Midweek, guests to Sunday River can also register for Outdoor Discovery School clinics and classes through the resort's partnership with L.L.Bean. With an Outdoor Discovery School located right at Sunday River's Grand Summit Hotel, instruction in archery, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and stand-up paddleboarding yoga is easy.

L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools at Sunday River offers clinics and courses at select times Monday through Friday until August 17. Registration and schedule information are available online at

Sunday River's Mountain Park is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays starting June 29 until September 3. Starting Friday, September 8, the Mountain Park schedule shifts to 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays until the closing day on October 8.
