Downhill Trails

With 100+ Km's of trails for you to ride, SilverStar is Canada's Second Largest bike park! SilverStar is proud to be one of the most progressive bike parks in the industry.  We have built our park on the concept of starting out as a new rider and being able to build your skills and confidence and safely progress through our trail system based on a ladder concept for the skill required for each trail. Starting on Challenger (green) and moviing your way up to blues and then blacks.

We also have high end trails trails like Pipe Dream, Downtown and Pro Star that keep even the best riders entertained.

Skills Areas

Beginner Skills Area - Located at the Star Kids Centre near Rentals in the village. There are a number of ramps and skinny wood features set up to practice your balance skills before heading out on the trails. 

The Vault - This progressive skills area and jump park is loads of fun. We are listening to our riders and there will be ongoing improvements each year. Currently, there are three jump lines that vary in size, small wooden drops and some wooden skinnies and boxes to practice on. Every rider can improve their skills -- Rock Star or Challenger will get you there.

Downhill Bike Trails
Green
 
Challenger This is our favourite beginner trail on the mountain and a great place to hone your skills. This is a challenging green trail with blue sections that branch off of the main trail for 100-200m and then join back up with the green trail. Test your skills and try out the blue sections where you'll find small jumps, rollers, low log rides and beginner berms, or stay on the green and cruise back down to the Comet Express. Find more info on Challenger on Trail Forks.
Easy Street Runs from the village to the bottom of the bike chairlift and is the easiest route down to the Comet Express chairlift.  This is a multi-use trail so expect to see hikers sharing the trail. Access this trail right out of the village behind the Gondola. Find more info on Easy Street on Trail Forks.
Explorer Located on the outer edge of the village, this is the perfect trail to bring the newest enthusiast to mountain biking.  A 250m loop, it's perfect for kids perfecting their run bike skills or starting with their first bike with pedals and brakes.  It's also a great starting point for any age to get the essential skills required before venturing out into the vast network of trails around the mountain.  
Paradise Is a leisurely trail that is nice and wide and hard-packed the whole way from the top of the mountain back to the village. This trail is the longest on the mountain at 7km’s so beware that it may take you a little while to get to the village, but you can enjoy the great scenery the whole way. Expect hikers and XC riders to be travelling in both directions. Find more info on Paradise on Trail Forks.
