      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Powers Creek is the only paved shuttle in the area. The trails here are characterized by built up wooden stunts and good flow, although there are some pedally sections on the older trails, especially in the upper parts.

      Builders Only in particular is a local legend. The many stunts and TTF's compromise a nearly non-stop flow trail that rarely takes less than a 20 minutes to descend.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
      Builders Only Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Drive up Glenrosa Rd towards Crystal Mtn ski area. Just before the ski hill, turn right on to Jackpine FSR. There are several trailheads between 1.0 and 4.5 km along this road.

      Everything empties out at the top of Webber Rd. in the Glenrosa neighborhood.
