I tried several options to access this trail.
If you got an EBike or powerful legs, I would recommend this route: www.komoot.com/tour/945904571?ref=aso

I think it is the quickest and shortest one, but the fire road climb is hard if it is very dry, because the gravel is loose and deep.

You can turn this gem of a trail into a full blue run, if you stick to the Chicken/ Panty / Mona Lisa signs. In the last third, after a ladder, then do not take the misleading left turn into Green Spider, but keep right, traversing the hill, then after around 100m, do not take the left turn into LFW (signed: LFW welcomes you) but keep right traversing the hill and to complete a full blue SOT run.

In my video (see Videos of this trail) I turn into Green Spider!

Thanks to the builder for building all the chicken lines. That made it rideable for me after coming back from injury. If you ride all chicken lines, I would consider this a dark blue.

Hint: it is very easy at the end to go accidentally into 'Green spider" which has a short but chunky slab with a turn at the bottom. If you want to avoid that, better make sure you stay on SOT.

A definite enduro run. Lots of up-and-downs. Its elevation profile had definitely suggested so; but, on the ground, each one of those lines was, itself, composed of many tight ups and downs. Constant gear shifting; so much so that, for even a shifting junkie like me, a bit more reaction-speed is called for.
The initial part requires a lot of practice; as yet, I cannot climb, or descend, all of those boulders.
Then the flowy descent starts, followed by a sharp climb.
It's a great run, offering variety from the Nelsons and the Pseudos I usually do. Much thanks to its designers & crew.

Just when I thought it could not get any better, SORCA and Dream Wizards have added even more! IIRC it was last year when they bermed a tight turn which had, till then, a caution sign of some sort; I'd found myself slowing to a stop, on some occasions. Now, the area after that (which IIRC is near the covered bridge) has been turned into a maze of berms, a la the new additions to Pseudo Tsuga III. Great work. Positively orgasmic!

Great trail to improve my skills on. Much of it seems easy, except when you realize that, to clear the several tricky/difficult features, you have to _speed_ through the rest (to generate sufficient momentum). But, there are enough tight turns to make it difficult for me to sustain the speed. And the bridge & the rock-face are too challenging for my current skill-level.
Beautiful area.

whyapinkbike (Jul 18, 2020 at 11:46)

The bermed, wooden bridge is just a traction fear for me.
A higher drop (30+ cm, without a good landing) would've been fine, had I had more speed.
There is a rock-face-ish section, just before the intersection to Phil & Cam's, that is narrow and steep.
There is a 0.5 m drop, after a turn-at-a-crest, followed by a steep, which is definitely a Black section.
The mini rock-face which follows a ladder ramp & a slow turn is a problem I need to work on.

Most of this run is Green or Light Blue, with about 3 Dark Blue spots.
FYI. Full disclosure/honesty!

Love this trail... seems to get less traffic than some of the other trails, maybe because it is quite a big climb up. Starts out fast and flowy then turns into a loamy natural trail. The middle bench cut section has a fair bit of exposure so be careful esp if you have a fear of heights like me...

Great to have an alternative to biking up the forestry roads. As a whole though, I think there's a bit too much descent for a climb trail. Enough to add 280m vertical up to half Nelson seems like a bit too much. Some people may enjoy it, personally I think a climb trail should be designed to efficiently get you to the top of the trails

Hi Sun2306.

R U one of those working on the rating system for Trailforks?

And there within lies the problem. "Trailforks" is international. Strava and other recording apps are international and yet we cannot come up with a system that we can all agree upon.
Its the same with skiing.

This is a great uphill battle for those who like to climb. It is certainly doable for most. Almost all of the trail can be pedaled with good health and a 30T front. There are a few small hills that got me to push a little. It makes for great tech-like practice in some switchbacks and log/rock/root obstacles. The downhill is really rewarding after the climb as well! I will definitely choose this "in woods climb" over riding a fire road up!

Nice and tacky thanks to some morning rain.
In good shape, minus the "turkeys" riding down the trail skidding around each turn.
Is a flashing neon sign required at the top?

A fun, challenging, but never crazy trail, in surprisingly good condition. One of Squamish's best.

Ditch and pile machine construction has created a facsimile of of a mining road. Gets you up there reasonably efficiently, but with zero natural engagement or harmony.

Hi Jayacheess! Couldn't agree more with your review. The bottom half of the trail was built with a slightly bigger machine and a rock hammer. With all of the rock in the area, the hammer allowed us to build a good size bench and large radius turns and ditches. The upper half of the trail was built entirely by volunteers with a small machine and no rock hammer. The uphill ditches are necessary, but the corners are definitely too tight. We plan to go up in the next month or so and replace the ditches with culverts on the six tightest corners. This will give riders about another foot of turning radius and eliminate the sluffing too.

Honest review from a donor to the trail fund for this project: The trail is an absolute masterpiece. I'm blown away by how much vertical you get with such a reasonable climb. The amount of work put in is amazing, and everyone involved in the build should be extremely proud.

That said, I have a critique. Some of the switchbacks during the last half of the climb are extremely janky. They're tight, and the soil falls to an offcamber in to the drainage ditches too close to the radius of your turn. I was constantly sliding off the trail during the switch backs. Mind you, it was my first ride up, but it still seemed overly touchy to hit those properly.

This is not a green trail. Should be coded single black.

Flowy & fun. A great option to combine with Ed's Bypass, Man Boobs, and whatever Highlands trails you're feeling that day.

Another Man’s Gold is marked incorrectly on this Map. Fools Gold starts across from Half Nelson. Another Mans Gold starts directly across from the trail called Another Roadside Attraction.

Fun trail. Mostly DH, nice mix of flow and tech with a couple of interesting features. Definitely the standout of the Fred-Tinder-YM loop.
