Ride your enduro, trail or even XC bike and enjoy a sweet mix of the area XC trails, a solid resort climb and a well earned rip down the park DH track of your choice Be sure to have a Bryce Bike park or season pass before you shred their trails.

If you're on an XC sled without body protection or a full-face then for your own safety stick to the Sundowner DH trail at Bryce.

Note: Riders can leave off the road climb up Fairway Drive and the Park DH for a shorter 8 mile version of this route.

Rode Bryce for the first time this weekend. This was prob my second fav trail. Very progressive friendly. Big berms and easy jumps that'll have everyone smiling.

Completely agree with the other comments - very fun, well timed jumps, and perfect grade to progress your in-air comfort. Unfortunately, the trail appears to have not seen any maintenance since it was built. Brake bumps, washout, and loose gravel/shale everywhere. The black trails were in much better shape. Hopefully Bryce gets some love to the dirt more consistently.

Parts of Brew Thru get refreshed every year. It gets so much traffic that it deteriorates over the course of a season.

Rode this in summer 2014. Ridiculously fun, should almost be illegal. Looking forward to my next job in WDC just because of proximity to Bryce MTB park. Not exaggerating.
