Mountain Biking Awakening

***   Add a review
#702 of 1,343 mountain bike trails in Colorado

While Awakening is designated a downhill-only trail it is still very much a
beginner singletrack trail. You definitely do not need a downhill bike to ride it; a
hardtail would be totally at home on this trail! A couple of inches of suspension
might be a little more comfortable, though. In fact, riding a full-on DH rig on
this trail was actually a little work in spots as it was so much flatter than other
trails. Even carrying good speed you still had to do a little pedaling. Of course,
it's not the end of the world.... earn those turns!

Bottom line: the Evolution Bike Park has plenty of terrain that's prefect for the
neophyte downhiller.

    To build an entire green run from top to bottom, ride Primer to Awakening (this trail) to Warming House.* Review edited 8/11/2011
