Description

Timeline is Crested Butte’s iconic black diamond jump run. Every downhill bike park needs a big hit line, and Timeline is it for CBMR!

Here, you’ll find massive tabletop jumps of varying sizes, along with a variety of other types of hits: step downs, hips, and more. In between the hits, berms and smooth singletrack allow riders to keep their speed up and focus on preparing for the next massive jump.

Timeline was one of the original trails in the Evolution Bike Park, and consequently in places it shows its age a bit. Some of the tabletops can feel narrow or particularly high-consequence. That said, CBMR has worked to update some sections of this trail. That’s one of the best things about Evolution Bike Park— never willing to rest on their laurels, they continue to build new lines and improve old ones to keep their trails competitive with the best parks in Colorado.
