Sälen Bike Park is located on Gustavbacken. Take your bike up on the lift. There are trails for children, beginners and for those seeking more of a challenge.
Rosa Leden (blue)
The Rosa Leden is a machine-cut trail suitable for everyone, from the inexperienced downhill rider to those with a little more experience. The trail boasts an appealing incline, sweet velodrome turns, jumps and a few detours with differing characteristics. The Rosa Leden trail runs all the way from the top to the bottom of Gustavbacken. This is the trail for every wannabe DH rider. There is a detour towards the end of the trail that goes to the ConceptStore on Sälfjällstorget square.
The Pipeline is somewhat faster than the Rosa Leden, but is still suitable for both beginners and more advanced riders. The Pipeline is a machine-cut trail featuring velodrome turns and jumps. It starts at the top of Gustavbacken and finishes down by the bottom station of the Gustav Express lift.
Herr Melin (red)
A man-made "single track" that is about 1 metre wide. We made the character of the trail as natural as possible by bringing out natural features, which means the technical requirements are a little higher than for example Rosa Leden. The trail includes jumps, rock drops and banked bends for a nice flow. The trail splits at the end so you can choose to continue onto either Charter or the Rosa Leden.
Charter is for those riders who want higher speed and effort from the Pipeline and the Rosa Leden. This trail is red and so requires more of the rider. This trail is based on speed, jumps and flow. We got some assistance on the design from Tom Pro from Gravity Logic, who designed the trails in Whistler Bike Park, among other places. Charter begins together with the Herr Melin before branching off and turning red before the Herr Melin meets the Rosa Leden.
The Sherpa is a technically demanding and at times steep single track featuring mountain terrain, roots and stones in the ground. The characteristics of the trail differ markedly from the dug-out tracks. On this trail, it's important to find the right line and master the surface. The trail runs alongside the Orrenlift from the top of Gustavbacken (the lift to the left of Gustavbacken when you're facing the mountain).
