Completely rebuilt by TrailPro in 2019, Siberian Express is a Grade 3 XC loop. It starts and returns to the Park Summit.

It's a pretty cool take on XC Trail, a hand built feel but a combo of flow and technical gnar mixed in. There are lots of alternate lines, with both descending and ascending challenges to keep you on your toes. There is so much packed into the loop you need to ride it more than a few times just to try out all the options

Access Info

Siberian Express is a loop track that starts and stops from the Summit - or Shuttle drop off point. You can also enter into the final climb from Check Point Charlie which will take you up Siberian Express to the Summit.
