2016 TransBC - Day 2

It starts as a shuttle to Rusty parking and finishes at the Pearly Gates. You aren't going to want to pedal up to retrieve after this day.

(These are the GPX tracks from the actual ride, not as pretty as selecting the trails but it'll get you around.)

Trail Riddle Rd.
Steeper than other climb trails in the network but it gets you up the mountain in 30% less time than Yellow Brick Road and Neverland. It’s somewhat shaded other than the bottom. An abandoned destroyed car litters the trail after the creek crossing.

It’s a long climb that’s slow to gain elevation but scenic. Somewhat technical in spots.

Rode from the Rusty connector down, good shape, tacky! Nice bunches of OK flowers part way down. If you accidentally end up in someone’s driveway by their garage at the bottom, turn around and pass through the fence (it ‘unlatches’ on the right side), then hang a left down to the KVR.

Super Fun trail, mainly good because of all the old wood features would recommend only riding upper half and cutting back onto Three Blind Mice for a better ride

Super fun trail with lots of woodwork and dirt based jumps. Many of the features are broken but there are still tons that ride well thanks to someone’s recent work. It’s a long trail too with a few chutes. Climb is pretty short from the forestry road

Rode N to S.
Great trail!! My fiance, who is generally a good intermediate rider found it very challenging.
The day before we had ridden "Granite" in Vernon, and she cruised through that. So if you're "just" a blue rider, maybe pick an alternative trail, or use this to test you!
As an advanced rider, I LOVED the alternative optional harder lines and drops. Plus I nipped off down sections of "slabs" and "high roller" to get my fix.

Junk, don't waste your time, half the stunts are broken or there's a fallen tree across the trail right on the landing of a jump.

Nice looong climb, mostly fairly relaxed with a few moreintense sections. No good options to get into the main set of trails before reaching the top of it.

Mosikito just before dead horse was flowy. Dead horse was rocky with narley drops down some rock terrain. You may want to take your time and sesh this one.

Short and Fun. Very typical of the mice style of trail.
In my opinion, this trail is pretty technical.

Trail Slabs
Very fun trail. The upper part is dark blue tech. About 3/4 of the way down, the trail crosses Fred. From here it is very easy to accidentally just continue down Fred. For those who want to kick up the spice level, turn right at Fred to get to lower slabs (there is a sign) the lower part is one big rock slab, and more technical than the upper section.

Trail is running well. A bit muddy in sections but you can see that someone has been putting work into it and rebuilding some old stunts etc. Super fun rip!

Trail Drops A Lot
My favourite of the bunch, this trail has a lot of flow but also a ton of features. The biggest drops are about 3 feet and to flat but there are small jumps everywhere and a dozen or so smaller drops. The trail gets confusing at one spot in the middle and you need to stay right.

Short and fast after the initial small climb, this trail is smooth and fun. Maybe the least technical of the blacks in the area

Made the mistake of trying to get in this from the KVR trail and almost killed ourselves sliding down beside the culvert. Trail at the bottom has a bunch of overgrown trees, lots unrideable. I recommend avoiding.

This was one of the first 'other than the classic' trails in the Mice. Built as a climb. If you descend down it's called 'Derf'.
