Winter Park Top Rides

Bear Arms
This trail is known for its challenging rock features. Heading along the trail you will zip in and out of the bush where you will encounter rock drops that increase in size the further you head down the trail, tight singletrack, root drops that lead into technical turns and some optional jumps off rocks. The trail ends with a tight right hand downhill that leads you on to the 300 Yard Walk connector trail.
Distance: 0.6km | Trail Type: Singletrack | Trail Grade: Black

Spicy Chicken
A fun intermediate track that flows nicely, perfect for those wanting to practice their jumps. With small table tops, rollers and a wood feature that are all rollable it means this track is also perfect for those that aren’t yet skilled at jumping.  The track then merges with the beginner trail “Green World” so be wary of new riders who may be too focused on the trail ahead to notice it merges with another.
Distance: 1.2km | Trail Type: Singletrack | Trail Grade: Blue

Rainmaker
Designed for intermediate and expert riders, the trail starts off with two step-down table top jumps before crossing a gravel road and onto a wooden boardwalk into the trees. Here you will discover kilometres of dirt jumps, tabletops and berms before crossing an access road and heading back onto the trail which features more berms, and jumps.  Don’t worry if you aren’t interested in finding air most of the jumps on this trail can be bypassed or rolled over.
Distance: 5.4km | Trail Type: Singletrack | Trail Grade: Black
