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.

Thanks for the great season. The mountain is now closed and getting ready for winter. The Knoll XC network is the only area to remain open, keep an eye for rolling closures for fuel management work. reporter
