In development for the past four years, we’re proud to introduce Beowulf, our newly 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.

I went up to silver star with the Markles and got some go pro clips. This is my first actual Down Hill ride since my collar bone injury.

One tree down on descent near the bottom. Have to climb over. Can see it coming well in advance. Previously reported trees down on the climb have been removed. In great condition. Trail crew is the best in the world! Thanks boys!

Rained last night (Sept 3) so no dust at all. Cold - cool out for our ride which is great because I seriously can't imagine riding the switchbacks out from the Creek in the heat. Water is available at the creek if you have the ability to treat it. Next time I'll carry less water weight and just use my steripen.
