After a 4 year construction to ensure all details were met we’re proud to showcase Beowulf, our minted XC epic, named after the poem about a legendary dragon-slaying Scandinavian warrior. Borrowing its name from the poem is a true fit for the trail, capturing the undertaking of building it from beginning to end. The 35km loop takes riders along ridgelines, through cedar rainforests and grassy meadows as it winds its way from the village and back again, covering all of the incredible terrains SilverStar has to offer. A must-do ride for the discerning mountain biker.

 Meh. Really uninteresting loop. The down part has nothing fun to offer.

 It's a shame, it's not worth it. The climb out is not a nice climb by any means. I was expecting some really nice scenic views along the way but you're better off just taking the chairlift up if you want that.

Definitely won't be re-riding this trail.

 Running great right now, was able to sprint/ pump most of the traversing part of the trail. The decent gets tighter the faster u go. Took around 3 hrs. Bring water with all this heat.

 WOW!!! Awesome loop, definitely worth checking out. I enjoyed the climb as much as the descent. Very impressed with the work that went into the trail.

 This depends on your personal tastes. To me it was the longest green XC trail I have ever ridden fitness considerations aside. It felt like ground hog day on the descent and climb. That is because the entire trail has the same soil/terrain conditions. The once way ascent back out of the valley has what I refer to has to way machine built flow corners -not my cup of tee.

I would do it again if I lost 20 lbs, got a pure XC bike and was STRAVA segment hunting.
