Trestle Bike Park @ Winter Park is a two-time first place winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Rocky Mountain Region.
Perched high in the Rockies and just a short drive from Colorado’s Front Range, Trestle is working hard to brand itself “Bike Park U.S.A.,” and it shows. With more than 40 miles of trails, built features and manicured runs are what this park is known for. Other resorts in the region offer more in the way of tech, but you can still find plenty of pucker factor here, and for an overall world-class bike park destination, Trestle should be on your short list.
WHAT TO EXPECT RIDING TRESTLE BIKE PARK @ WINTER PARK
The Trestle Bike Park at Winter Park Resort is home to over 200 features, 37 miles of chairlift accessible mountain bike terrain that connects with another 600 miles throughout the Fraser Valley. The Zephyr Express, Gemini and Eskimo chairlifts operate with their own bike transportation system, making Winter Park the only resort in North America with three lifts dedicated to mountain bikers.

Beyond the Bike Park
Trestle Bike Park is integrated into over 600 miles of bike trails throughout the Fraser Valley, making Winter Park one of the top destinations for bikers of kinds of abilities. From cross-country to downhill, every mountain biker has plenty to keep them interested at Winter Park.

Trestle is probably the most popular bike park in Colorado due to the variety of trails they offer. The terrain is rocky and can be loose when it’s dry. The trails range from fast and flowy to technical race style trails. There is a fair amount of wood features throughout the park including drops, doubles, wall rides and booters to provide even more fun.
If you’re looking for a friendly warm up lap down the mountain, hop on Shy Ann to Free Speech. Both are flowy Blue trails with a couple of small tabletop jumps and wood features. When you’re ready for some jumping, hop on the token Trestle trail Rainmaker, with table after table of fun. If you’re looking for a more technical challenge, run down Trestle Downhill with steep, rough and rooty singletrack.
Not to be left out, cross-country riders can get in some riding on the outer edges and summit of Trestle Bike Park or can take one of the connecting trails to access the down-valley trails.
