Everyone has a different feeling for what the perfect trail should embody. I’ve already expressed love for the more rugged, unkempt and raw trails that really help connect me with nature, so this trail fit the bill. Angel’s Staircase, hailing from the Methow chapter of the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, first caught my eye in an issue of Freehub magazine. With over six-thousand feet in elevation change, I was a little concerned for the ascent up to the pearly gates. However, Angel’s Staircase ended up being one of the top five rides of the year, hands down.
Everything from the climb, the views, the features and more gives Angel’s Staircase the Backcountry Banger stamp of approval. If you want to check out more Backcountry Bangers, there are two certified slaps in the playlist below, with more to follow!
