climbed the road and enjoyed the flowy, fast, and fun downhill. Great addition to the area.

Trail The Still
Great loop. We rode it ccw and it rode well that way, but may try it the other way next time.

Trail Sundance
Awesome trail. Good use of some neat terrain. The old trail was old school to a fault. This is much better. Well done trail builders!

They should’ve called it slow rider! This trail
could’ve been an amazing flow trail but you have to pedal the whole way down to stay at trail speed

Trail Eye Candy
An easily little add-on at the end of a twin peaks climb, this is NOT. Steep rocky & soft switchbacks climb up to horse lake mountain. Doable but not a ton of fun. The view up top is nice and the downhill on the other side is a blast (albeit aggressive).

It is named after a local trail building legend “Double D” David Dunnell.

Stairway is named appropriately - best used as an uptrail, but it can be ridden down, it just doesn't flow very well out of the switchbacks where berms are either lacking on the exit, or nonexistent (see: crash). It's also very flat, so you'll be pedaling a lot on the descent, but that makes it a super easy uphill. It's an excellent backbone to get to future downtrail developments. I'd rate it as a green circle. There are still a few fun flowy sections, though. Oh, and the views are excellent!

It’s definitely a sanctioned trail and is the main up trail to the other trails! This trail should be rated green though!

This trail is called Flow Rider. Flowy blue trail that is best ridden downhill.

Trail Double D's
Sweet flowy new trail. Perfect corners. Slightly bumpy in places due to it being pretty new but its buffing out nicely. Very much an easy blue trail, not a black at all.

Easily the most ridden trail in the #2 Canyon complex, so I don't get the unsanctioned label placed upon the trail? Evergreen has worked upon the trail recently as well.
