evo's Favorite Trails

The Boulevard
Advanced | 3 Miles  | 1,734' Descent

The Boulevard is a fun downhill mountain bike trail that has a little bit of everything, from rock gardens to tabletops and flow. The trail begins with a long rock garden, the more speed the better to clean this section. From here, The Boulevard gets smooth and flowy traversing the ski area. There are some berms, small drops and tabletops here, too. The lower section gets faster with bigger berms. Despite the advanced rating, the trail doesn’t have any particularly large or imposing features.

Rainmaker
Advanced| 3.3 Miles | 1,202' Descent

Rainmaker is one of the most fun downhill mountain bike trails at the Trestle Bike Park, The top features a long mostly straight section with tons of fun tabletops. Great groomed berms and jump continue throughout the entire trail. The flow is all-time, with no pedaling necessary, and tons of airtime possible. All of the jumps on Rainmaker are tabletops or double roller style, so no mandatory gaps. The middle section has some of the biggest jumps. Big berms, more jumps, and a couple wooden features make up the lower section, on which there are some gaps.  
 

Green World
Beginner | 4.8 Miles | 1,377' Descent 

Green World is an awesome beginner downhill mountain bike trail, it’s one of many great beginner and family friendly trails in Winter Park.

Banana Peel - Pro Line
Expert | .3 Miles | 156' Descent

The Banana Peel is a freeride trail with some huge features, this is probably the gnarliest line at the Trestle Bike Park. The trail drops is with a massive banked wooden berm, dropping about 10’ on the exit. This sets the stage for more drops and gaps, some over 20’. This is a full on slopestyle trail. A special pass is needed to access the Pro Line features. The pass is free, given to riders after completing an orientation, a waiver, and watching a safety video.  
 

Trestle DH
Intermediate | 2.7 Miles | 900' Descent

The top starts out fairly mellow with some berms winding through the woods, then makes its way through some more tricky rocky sections. The trail is definitely more technical than flowy, with rocky sections throughout. The lower section does open up for a fun higher speed finish.  
 

Long Trail

Typical Weather & Riding Conditions

Winter Park’s mountain bike trails are some of the first Colorado high country trails to melt out each spring in May or June. Trestle bike park is typically open from June until October. Opening and closing dates can vary depending on when the winter snow melts out, and when it picks back up again in the fall. While the trail crew do a great job of keeping the trails in good shape, a lot of riders come through during the summer month, which can mean duty trails and brake bumps when it hasn’t rained for a while.
