It's a shit trail. All of these comments of it being great are paid employees of the nordic center.

Rideable but where the f*ck is the fun at? I mean SUPER jarring...not a single view. On my third time taking this run I decided I never want to be on it again. Stupid f*cking trail. EKG more north and below the beginning of odyssey may be the only sensible enjoyable part?

Yet again a perfect example of wtf on this app OR the nordic center is just horrifically designed. Killer bees would be one of the better runs at nordic but here we go again with these c*nts telling you to bike UP a track when it's really obvious you should be going the opposite way. Too bad there's no good way to get to it. For anyone who doesn't understand Nordic center definitions yet...
Cross country (have fun going uphill pussy)
Technical (our trails are the roughest you could imagine)
Full suspension (did we mention we have the worst terrain possible)

Rideable for me (intermediate blue, mtb) but no fun. Maybe I just like more flow, but it felt like there was no reward for the unending jarring. I found there to be lots of crossings with other fast trails, so I couldn't get into groove. Lots of roots made for a dicey ride after a passing shower. I eventually gave up and took Meadowview (MV on the map, = greyed out access road) to Odyssey - way more scenic and fun.

Another great trail. Again easy going up, fast and flowy going down and a couple line choices along the way. Love it

EKG seems to be the primary blue trail for accessing many others. It's has enough up hill downhill sections to keep it interesting but not so steep as to leave you worn out. A nice consistant moderate level of difficulty with many different terrain types and views. Mostly side hill cruising.
