Trail Alp D' Huez
Sentinel down to Alp is one of the most enjoyable sections of the park. If you like fast switch, you'll like ALP.

The one trail I wouldn't leave the park without riding. Slight rooted climb at the beginning, but worth it.

Trail Big Bear
This is a super smooth trail with a small drop to bypass a small rock garden and also a little rock jump. Its one of my favorites so far and a very enjoyable ride for all skill levels.

Probably my favorite trail in the park. It’s a weird mix of double single track with lots of rocks and roots you can jump and drop off of. Don’t skip the last section of the trail, it’s very fast and very gnarly.

Trail Alp D' Huez
This is commonly ridden North to South, for a bit more action, speed, challenge, and (IMO) fun, hit it from the South side and ride downhill.

Fun trail but was over-hyped imo. I liked Hemlock more.

Love this trail its smooth and fast. Some sections are a little like the Bear Brook Trail, on the edge but very smooth. ITS SICK and in my opinion a must ride.
