The story has already begun, battles have been fought and glory has become the result.
This is the beginning of the everlasting story of Beowulf!
In development for the past four years, we’re proud to introduce Beowulf, our newly minted XC epic, named after the poem about a legendary dragon-slaying Scandinavian warrior. Borrowing its name from the poem is a true fit for the trail, capturing the undertaking of building it from beginning to end. The 35km loop takes riders along ridgelines, through cedar rainforests and grassy meadows as it winds its way from the village and back again, covering all of the incredible terrain SilverStar has to offer. A must-do ride for the discerning mountain biker.
