Galactic definitely rides like a moto trail. A long, steep climb with some loose sections, and a couple technical climbs as well. What the trail lacks in overall flow, it almost makes up for with some interesting scenery, and a good viewpoint that looks down onto the Alice lake zone. The lower portion of the trail opens up with some fun and fast flow, but watch for obstructions.

Access Info

Pedal up Access 6 at the 3rd switchback of Garibaldi Park Road. Continue pedalling past the entrance to Grin and Holler. You will come to an obvious Y intersection. The signs for Galactic are clearly marked. Stay right at the fork and continue to climb access 6. When the trail begins to descend, you're on Galactic.

A few small trees down but that's normal for this trail. One small ditch to push over. A bit of snow at the top but a fun trail!

Overgrown for most of the way down so you can't really get going as line of sight is short. A bit of an adventure ride but unless it gets worked...

Dry. Gravelly in spots. Some smaller, fallen trees. Main issue is an eroded creek-cut that will require a heroic bunny hop or brief lift-a-bike....

A couple of logs across the trail in the middle section - watch out for the one that's just a bit too high to duck under. Also a few overgrown...
