Originally built to access/exit Old Age and Treachery trail, Gold Rush is divided into two sections. This section (Gold Rush) can be ridden in either direction while the north section (Gold Rush Descent) is downhill only with the switch occurring where the trail intersects the transmission line right of way.

The southern half of the Gold Rush is two directional, but is gradual downhill (and most enjoyable) when ridden south from its junction with Gold Rush Descent. This is a local favourite section for the way it pumps, rolls, and flows. It is a middle ring pedal. You will find some nice step downs and booters on this route. If riding up CBT Mainline, think about jumping over to Gold Rush at the Powerline and taking Gold Rush south to Old Age. From Old Age you head back onto CBT and continue to the top. Alternatively, you can do a loop in the Old Age and Treachery area.

See Gold Rush Descent for north section.

Access Info

Access is off either the transmission line right of way or Old Age and Treachery trail.
