 Can someone explain the Incline section to me? This is clearly a downhill trail. The old portion of Incline is barely walkable never mind bikable and the new line is a beautiful machine built downhill rip....Are we really going to climb up instead?

 This unorthodox route includes a short hike which enables people from 36 different countries to enjoy both the flow of Mushroom and Upper Dale's as well as some North Shore gnar, while keeping the rubber off the pavement as much as possible. For more information feel free to contact info@bcbikerace.com.

Raw footage is the signature. I just wanted to show this section of the trail so you can consider it for your loops. They've done some good work...
