Meet the Purgatory Bike Park Trails
The Purgatory Bike Park features almost 20 trails that include fast, flowy downhill as well as cross-country style riding. Trails range from mellow and fun for riders of all skill levels, to steep and technical that challenge even the most experienced riders. Read on to learn about some of our favorites and check out the trail report to see what’s open.
Shangri-La | Beginner
Finished just in time for summer 2020, our newest trail has been receiving rave reviews. The fun and flowy berms give riders the feeling they are on a rollercoaster. Shangri-La provides a great training ground for novice riders, while allowing advanced riders to brush up on skills. Read more.
Divinity | Intermediate
It’s all about progressive features on this locals-favorite flow trail. Hit jumps, berms and a wall ride (option to bypass) as you wind down the machine-built trail.
World Cup | Expert
This trail has historical significance, as it was the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup downhill course in 2001! It begins with high speed grassy flat turns. These turns lead into a series of cliff bands that are navigated with a mixture of fall line drops and technical traverses. The trail ends with a set of steep, off-camber turns that challenge even the best of riders.
