Super fun fast flowing trail. The first section features some loamy flats and dips in and around several ravines, downhill bikes will be a bit slower through the first section. The trail then gives way to a series of bermed corners and features sections with connecting berms to keep the flow going and is a great way to end off a lap on Vedder. There are two small steep shale chutes at the bottom, make sure you slow down. Exit carefully onto the road.

Access Info

This trail can be accessed by following Electric Lettuce into Mango Mango. Mango Mango exits onto an access road and the entrance to femur is directly across.

There is an alternate entrance that is more downhill friendly further down the trail after the first cross ditch, slow down or you might miss it. This entrance enter to your left.

A short lap of femur is also possible when travelling up Parmenter Rd. The road forks for a second time and a large rocked yellow gate blocks access to the right, while the left fork continues further up the mountain and forms the main access to the Vedder trail network. If you hike-a-bike over the yellow you can follow it up all the way to the femur entrance. This provides a great little loop in the winter when the higher trails are snowed in.
