Starting from the Kinsmen Park trail head, this route will take rides on an approximately 10km loop through the best of Centennial Park and Shuniah Mines.

The route starts with an easy ride along the river before turning up the most iconic climb in the area Hydro Hill. At this point riders will enter the singletrack portion of the route, starting with some of the most well know 'old school' trails; Upper 2k Trail, Dagobah and BMX.

The route then dives the top rated trail in the system, the fast and flowy Grand Chasm (keep your eyes open for multiple line options!) before climbing back up the newly constructed Peek-a-boo. Rides then head down the system classic Doctor's before climbing out of the singletrack on 1K Trail, Cassandra and dives down the new newly expanded Hilltop trail.

The final reward is fast paced doubletrack descent back down to the river on the Blue trail.
