      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      The Vortex; where getting lost is a rite of passage. Tight and twisty technical XC trails linked by access roads defines the core of the trail system in the Vortex. Situated between multiple swamps the region has excellent drainage for winter riding. The difficulty level for these trails is quite high and newer riders may not enjoy the challenge.
