Spicy Chicken -> Paper Boy Map

Trestle Bike Park is rebuilding many of their jump trails to modernize their jump design. The new jumps feature steeper lips that are squared off on top, and the landings feature taller knuckles. Even though they're still considered table tops, there's a U-shaped dip in the top of these new modern tables.


At the time of this writing in fall of 2023, Spicy Chicken is the latest trail to have been rebuilt. After the rebuild, the flow on Spicy Chicken is superb—beautifully sculpted berms and towering jump lips. In fact, the jumps on Spicy Chicken are now much more difficult than the jumps on the upper section of Rainmaker, even though the trail map still shows this as an intermediate trail and Rainmaker as an advanced trail. However, more changes may be coming—stay tuned!

This top-to-bottom run begins on the beautifully reworked hits on Spicy Chicken and then drops into the most popular trail on the mountain: Paper Boy.

Paper Boy is the most popular trail in the Trestle Bike Park due to its very approachable intermediate-level flow. The entire trail consists of swoopy berms, fun rollers, and optional tabletop jumps. Almost all of the jumps on this trail are pretty small and easily approachable, aside from one optional gap that's clearly marked.

If you don't want to get air, you can easily roll through this trail and simply enjoy the flow—no problem. Unlike some of the bigger jump trails where the near-vertical lips are difficult to roll over, all of the jumps on Paper Boy are easily negotiable without having your tires leave the ground.

After the fairly large tabletops on Spicy Chicken, Paper Boy isn't nearly of the same caliber or challenge. However, this combination does provide a great top-to-bottom flow trail rip!



Mostly stable trail tread with some variability featuring larger and more unavoidable obstacles that may include, but not be limited to: bigger stones, roots, steps, and narrow curves. Compared to lower intermediate, technical difficulty is more advanced and grades of slopes are steeper. Ideal for upper intermediate riders.
