Part of the area dubbed “Mountain Bike Capital USA,” Trestle Mountain Bike Park is Winter Park’s claim to the mountain bike throne with 27 downhill and freeride trails and 33 miles of total terrain. Built by the same Gravity Logic crew as Bike Snowmass, Trestle ups the ante with its newest freeride trail, Cruel and Unusual. The run requires some serious commitment with several ladder drops and gap jumps at high speeds. Trestle 101 clinics are available daily and are actually a great way for even the advanced riders to increase their skill base and learn the mountain before tackling options like the 1,700 vertical foot race course. For those who need a little more than speed-induced adrenaline, Trestle connects with more than 600 miles of cross-country terrain in the bike-rich Fraser Valley. If you’re planning a trip to Winter Park, make sure to check out the Colorado Freeride Festival, oft considered one of the best mountain bike competitions in the U.S.
