High Point

Half Nelson - perhaps the most famous and most ridden trail in Squamish. This is a must ride trail when visiting Squamish. The climb to the top is fairly mellow. There is one steeper section just after the Sorca Shelter, however the fire road is completely rideable. Don't be put off by the climb as this descent is so flowy that you will likely find yourself riding straight back up to the top for another lap! Do it... you know you want to. As a bonus we included Another Man's Gold in this loop. This is an under ridden extension that might just be even more fun than Half Nelson itself!

Fresh tracks on Half Nelson. When it snows we make the best of a bad situation, had lots of fun anyway.
