The elevation chart for this trail is wrong. It's also in the wrong direction

The elevation chart does not do this justice… there are some savage punchy climbs. Steep, abrupt, loose and techy. I love some old school tech but honestly I would pass on this and ride more of the other stuff in this area. There are definitely a few fun moves here, but I didn’t think the juice was worth the squeeze.

Trail Brackentrail
good reminder today that brackentrail is sometimes used as a climbing trail. good thing its early and the foliage cover isn't grown in so you can see down the trail a fair ways, otherwise it would have been an ugly head on with an e-bike crew coming up it today.

If you've never ridden this trail, you have to go slow on your first way down. But after you get to know it, really cool technical but also flowy trail. Lots of rocky sections, corners with lots of roots and some rock walls. The ending is flowy and leads into another easy flow trail

About 2 minutes into this trail I regretted not riding Pamplemousse again. Old school. Bone rattling.

Once you get past the big climb, it's a really great descent. One of the best in Squamish.

Rode this Dec 30th. Was one of the greenest, mossiest, pretty trails I've ever ridden. Makes excellent use of the terrain. It's got peaks, valleys, little ponds, walls of moss, tight corners, tricky climbs, everything. Such an excellent XC trail.

Just rode this on Dec 30th and it's a gorgeous technical XC trail that makes excellent use of the terrain. It was unbelievably green and mossy. There's a few old massive dinosaurs on it too!

Can anyone tell me the directions of the two new trails end/start below brackentrail? One goes towards top of skyridge, one goes up jacks to the end of icy hole of death. I have climbed them both but I have also had people come down it. Thanks

Two way trail... although it makes more sense as a climb to Jack's in my opinion.

I loved this trail! I would call it an easy black trail. Although I love tech trails and challenging myself, it was fun to ride top to bottom without having to stop and look at any features the first time on this trail. This trail flows! For me and my riding level, it was low stress and less dangerous than most of the black trails I’ve checked out in the area.

Fun down trail to get back to Tantalus after riding Alice Lake trails. Nice combo after Rollercoaster to finish the day. Lots of roots, hence the name!

Would be a fun trail to get to know really well. Also great for suspension tuning. As an out-of-towner, for a single descent, I found the combination of mellow angle and massive erosion more chunky than fun or hard. I wondered if it was just too beat to hell after being the PB Hot Lap--maybe it was better 2 years ago.

Wet root and rocks to watch out for. Take it slow.
Slippery but still good to ride.

Riding awesome at the moment. The sea to sky needs more trails like this! The berms ride amazing and add perfect flow to this otherwise technical trail. No stupid uphills (once the trail starts proper) also adds up to ultimate flow. Trail builders take note-this is how you build trails.

Great trail. First time down. XC along the top ridge and a fantastic finish. Climbing up 50 shades as a fun loop off of Jacks.
