Beowulf is Silver Star Bike Parks signature "epic" trail. This trail is a 3+ year project that will take you through many different geo-climatic zones from the treeline into the depths of Putnam Creek with old growth cedar and hemlocks. It's a trail that you don't want to miss, but be ready for a long descent and an equal climb to get back out. Pack your lunch and camera and enjoy

Access Info

The full loop starts from the village and takes Cross Mountain Trail across to Silver Shack, then follow Paradise for less than 1Km and you'll find the start to Beowulf on the right. If you're wanting to minimize your climbing and increase your descents, grab a lift ticket and head to the bottom of the Comet chair. From the top your three easiest options are... 1-1) Paradise all the way to Beowulf. 2) Challenger to the first Paradise crossing then down Paradise to Beowulf. 3) Jedi Mind Trick and pull off after the last jump in the 4 pack onto Paradise again heading down to Beowulf.
