Considering this is the only way to/from Alice Lake the northshores really should be wider to allow disabled or people coming back from injury to use it.

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

As an intermediate trying to progress this was a challenging but doable trail. There were many rock rolls I could practice on and only one that I had to walk. Lots of fun tech.

I would consider this a very easy blue. Mostly green but one or two tech sections that are easy to walk. The sudden uphill in the middle caught me off guard. Overall really fun and great for beginners trying to progress.

Nothing fabulous, especially if compared to Somewhere over there. It’s worth a try but you’ll probably won’t do it more than once. It’s on the easy side of black.

An awesome legacy ride. This is a 2 way trail, but only
room for one in the long bridge over the bog. Eyes open and show respect. Don’t taking the bridge when others are already mid-span.

So, can I trust the last reports? Is the trail in good conditions or there is too much snow to ride?

Super fun trail but not sure how that’s a blue. Don’t expect something similar to Half Nelson, Pseudo, Man Boobs or Loa

don't think so, no point in doing it anyways- saves you so little pedaling that its probably slower than just riding up the Mashiter. You can't shuttle the rest of the Mashiter anyways

Nope, it is gated at the bottom. Shuttling isn't my thing, but I would guess Pemby is a good recommendation.

Intermediate blue trail with maybe one rock roll that's on a darker side of blue. Honestly didn't feel like it was worth the trip over from Dimondhead parking, but if you're sick of ripping Half Nelson and Angry M then throw this in for variety.

A classic SQUAMISH trail for the past 25 years that wraps up any ride ending on Perth with a big smile on your face. A crowd favorite for the Test of Metal. Good for any rider. Beginners may find the last pitch worth a walk.

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?
