August 18, 2012. Whatcom County, Washington.
One of the first trails off of Mount Baker Highway. A steep climb through lush forest leads to a long meadow and then to a former fire lookout site at 6100 feet elevation.
Roundtrip is about 8.5 miles and the elevation gain is 3750 feet.

After doing a bunch of videos about the bikes at Outerbike Crested Butte, we’re doing one about the trails at Evolution Bike Park, I enjoyed riding this bike park so much its worth taking a look at the variety there is here. Also, I want to include Evolution Bike Park on the rides map on my new site, go check it out if you haven’t i think its a pretty cool feature.
The first trails we’re goint to take a look at are the ones in the center of the mountain as they’re what most people probably do first, and we’re starting at Hotdogger, its the Green trail the park tells you to ride first time down and I think its a good choice; you’d probably think it’d be boring being a green trail, but it really is not. This trail has significant flow but refrains from any technical features that would make begginers uncomfortable, the rollers are big enough that an experienced rider can enjoy taking them at speed and pumping while a begginer can do them slower without much intimidation. This one will get you going fast and with nice berms and a wide trail it will be a great one to just have fun on.
Avery happens to have been my favorite trail down the main section of the mountain, it had a little bit of everything but was mostly oriented as a Technical trail with a fair amount of rock gardens, steep sections, roots and wooden drops. It was also a lot tighter than all the trails we previously looked at. Good thing is there is nothing particularly killer about it, there’s just one 6ft drop to look out for that you can bypass. That being said, this is one to stay on your toes on, a slight lack of concentration can get you in trouble quickly.
Teaser was my favorite flow trail on the mountain, and according to most people I spoke to, theirs too. This is a popular choice definitely worth taking a couple of runs at, the big berms make it easy to keep speed up and the jumps are not too big with mellow lips, perfect to work on improving those jumps.
On to Frequency, this one kicked my ass, only trail I crashed on, which of course happened the first day when I was getting a little too balsy too soon. Frequency is probably the toughest blue trail here, its full of jumps and speed, and while just cruising through it is pretty easy, getting a perfect run in is tough as this is a trail that has you working non stop and it feels like its a lot longer than Luge despite the fact that they’re one next to the other and eventually merge into one.
Prospector is your typical CO ride, nice open fields with the ocassional traverese through aspens with a nice elevation loss to distance ratio.
Woods is a lot steeper than prospector and is on the same face of the mountain so its a lot shorter, but with more challenge and some great wooden features, including two huge wallrides, one of which I skipped as I only did this trail once and riding blind I was not going to hit it; although it did look like it was doable with enough speed and loads of fun. The trail ends with what seems like prospector but with nice long table tops.
Crusader is one I’m sorry I only did once, the first run through I was too busy looking at the end of the wooden features making sure there were no crazy mandatory drops, with some extra speed this one would have been a lot more fun. The feature I skipped was steep, seriously steep, a few people in the group hit and swear its the steepest feature they’ve ever done.
Last but not least, Westside, as the name says its on the west side of the mountain and you can follow this one down to the lift or use to connect into happy hour and go down into town, which never did unfortunately, somehow we were always late and in a hurry to get the bikes back to Outerbike in time. Westside is split into three trails, but while riding it you won’t really notice that, they flow one into the other. This trail is amazing, it feels like you’re no where near a bike park, it has the perfect combination of long descent with varying steepness while even providing some short punchy rocky climbs in a few spots along the way to break things up. Best of all, this crazy long trail leads straight back to the base, get on the lift and go again.
Evolution Bike Park was a blast and a great setting to test bikes on, with a nice variety of DH specific and more natural enduro feel trails there’s a place to ride here for almost all skill levels, granted, people with more skills will get more out of this place. I, for example, never did Psycho Rocks which is an iconic trail here, or Timeline which is a huge jumpline, I’ll leave those to the dedicated downhill guys.

When mountain bikers think about Crested Butte, Colorado, the 401 trail is most likely the first trail that comes to mind. We knew of more technical trails like Doctor Park, but everyone said 401 was Crested Butte’s most iconic trail. We can see why. Our mission was to make the 5-mile ascent to 11,000 feet without dying and bomb down as fast as possible. While there isn’t much in terms of “tech” on this trail, it’s still high risk in some spots due to off camber sections and extremely narrow single track. One miscorrection of the front wheel riding at speed is enough to send you down the flowery mountainside. The views are nothing short of spectacular. Keeping your eyes on the trail is really tough when you’re in the middle of arguably the most beautiful trail in Colorado. We had an absolute blast on this trail and will definitely be back to explore more of what Crested Butte as to offer!
