Trail Description
About this trail
This park has everything! Great downhill\'s for the extremist, long networks for the cross country rider, and trails for beginners. The lift ticket is fairly inexpensive (around $20), and if need be there are plenty of networks around the area that don\'t require a lift ticket. Nevertheless, the most fun I had was on \"The Downhill\" run. It is rated as a black diamond and for good reason. The trail consists of large jumps, gapped jumps, and park like obstacles that you must ride over and around. No worries if you don\'t have a full suspension bike, I have a hard tail and it was plenty for the challenge. Make sure you are comfortable on you bike before you try this trail. Nonetheless, the extremist will not be disappointed.

Review: Great park. Great facilities. Rode everything from Green to double black and enjoyed it all. Definitely aimed at more advanced riders. Would hope they build more greens and blues in the future for beginner riders

Review: I will start out by saying that I really had the time of my life! It was my first time doing downhill and it truly was a blast! I had some personal issues going on because I am 52yo and I am well overweight and I already did not sleep well the 2 nights prior to the trip and then we pretty much drove straight through from Dallas to Trestle. I was a blob of fatigue, hurt and zombiefied. We stopped at Angelfire first and I only managed to muster enough gumption to do 2 runs and felt near dead. Angelfire trails were really rough and very hard to ride. They required constantly maintaining a firm grip and in particular for a novice like myself to DH biking, constantly scrubbing speed. On top of everything was that I was on an All-mountain bike, that did not have that nice slack head angle so the front end was digging right into that rough surface and biting hard into those turns. In any case, I survived my first very difficult go at DH at Angelfire and we headed to Trestle. By day two I had slouphed off some of that fatigue but my thigh muscles were still way below par. So I I got my lift tickets and some body armor and I lifted up to the top and GreenWorld here I go. It was right off the bat an much easier surface trail wise to negotiate and that helped a lot. I was able to focus more on developing good sound DH skills like maintaining body position, looking further ahead, and good braking practices. I really started to progress and by the next day I was riding Rainmaker. Overall it was a very moving experience, I only wish we had come straight to Trestle instead of stopping at Angelfire first. There were some places on a couple of the single black and the blue trails where it was supposed to be flowy and it was a little more rough for lack of trail maintenance but for the most part I would definitely say that the trails that I rode overall were in pretty good shape! It was so much fun and in those mountains a truly spiritual experience. Going back next June and I can't wait!

Similar Trail: Green World, Long Trail and Rainmaker a couple of others.

Review: This was my first trip to a downhill park and OMG it is the best fun I've ever experienced. The trails are extremely well maintained (rode blue and black), the conditions yesterday (7/30/17) were perfect, and everything was absolutely mind-blowing fun. If you haven't done it, get off your ass and go...you won't be disappointed!

Review: My son and I visited Trestle because of the great reviews.....the park lived up to it's rating; it is a phenomenal bike park! The terrain is varied and lengthy but caters mostly to intermediate and very strong riders. We left feeling that this was a great place to ride DH bikes all day, although we managed just fine on our AM and Enduros.

Review: One of the best days ever for me on a bike. Beautiful vistas and trails for every level of experience. Glad I had the pads and helmet on though because is does get pretty gnarly in spots but the good kind of gnarly.

Review: I loved every minute of this trail. It was my first time mountain biking in Colorado and couldn't have started at a better place! I had a little experience since I was younger through trail riding. I started on the blues then was flying down the blacks by the end of the day! I recommend this to anyone who has a passion and a wild side to ride! I will definitely come back again and again!

Review: Great Bike Park, was there for opening day and was not disappointed. Something for everyone in my opinion, staff was very friendly and the village is a nice rest stop. Definitely a repeat adventure in the summer.

Review: Great collection of trails that Winter Park has. You can ride anything from a beginner trail to a trail that will scare the pants off of you. The features they have are absolutely awesome and will leave you with a smile on your face. For some of the more advanced trails you will either need a downhill bike with 6+ inches of travel or you will have to walk your bike around the larger features. The rating system they have on the trails I found to be very accurate so stay within your ability level or you will end up walking your bike down.

Review: You don't have to by a lift ticket to have a good time, go hit up all the XC trails and enjoy good ol mountain biking at it's finest. Climb up a mountain and bomb down smiling.

Review: Fantastic experience! First time on a dowhill course. Excellent trails and very ridable black and double black diamonds. Everything from a novice to extreme dowhiller. You can roll just about every obsticle if need be. Trestle has some narly dowhills and a few sections deserving of chicken route. Rainmaker was the best one of the day for me. I rode my regular set-up cross country without all of the dowhill protective gear. Although I would sugest otherwise, I found the trails quite managable (also kept me from jumping some of the big stuff). This is something that I would recommend to every single track junky.
