Last week, Black Press staff went for a pedal on the new mountain biking trail on Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

The trail, 5620 (pronounced Fifty Six Twenty) descends the resort’s 5,620 feet of vertical after an uphill climb of seven kilometres. To access it, riders take the Revelation Gondola.

5620 is a 15 km enduro-style, a machine-built trail designed for intermediate to advanced riders.
