Banff, Alberta, Canada
Star Wars is a super fun and flowy freeride trail with wooden features, huge bermed corners, and a big wall ride to boot. Built with the beginner to intermediate rider in mind, Star Wars is the perfect trail to take young riders on to introduce them to the sport of freeriding. Both young and old, beginner to expert, will have a blast riding laps on this kilometre-long descent. When combined with Return of the Jedi, the up track to the start of Star Wars, this loop is just over 2.5 km in length.
Star Wars was built in 2010 by the Bow Valley Mountain Bike Alliance (BVMBA) in partnership with Parks Canada, and is quickly becoming one of the most visited mountain bike trails in the Park. However, as the trail hasn’t seen regular maintenance, some of the features are starting to show their age. Please ride with care and make sure to check all features before rolling them. The BVMBA is planning to put some work into Star Wars over the next few years and the rumoured plan is that this track will become one of Banff’s first flow trails.
