Scorpion is the more difficult route down from the summit of Galbraith. Like Evolution, it sports a mix of ladders, drops, and jumps, but the features on Scorpion are steeper, narrower, and bigger.
The top half carries speed smoothly despite two steep sections. The bottom half is more awkward with enough elevation changes to make a consistent rhythm difficult.
Notable features include the large ladder drop at the start, some tricky ladder-to-log rides, and an optional suspension bridge. Of course there is more to see, including the new spur which is mostly rolling jumps at the moment.

|There is a tree down across the trail maybe half way, easy to climb over and you see it coming so not a huge hazard. Could be cut with a hand saw....|

|Some trail work being done. Not a significant issue at this point.|
