A long weekend means lots of riding, sore legs and good times. We also took a road trip to Parksville to check out the Hammerfest DH track. Enjoy!

A few trees are tight and fallen in along on the trail, could use help moving them out of the way. Removed some branches and smaller trees.

Was feeling nostalgic since I hadn't ridden this since the last time I raced it back in 2010 or 11. Should have looked on here first, most wooden features are rotten and falling apart, trail has turned into a creek on parts and is very eroded. Few downed trees as well. It's a shame, this trail used to be a lot of fun.
