I tried several options to access this trail.
If you got an EBike or powerful legs, I would recommend this route: www.komoot.com/tour/945904571?ref=aso

I think it is the quickest and shortest one, but the fire road climb is hard if it is very dry, because the gravel is loose and deep.

You can turn this gem of a trail into a full blue run, if you stick to the Chicken/ Panty / Mona Lisa signs. In the last third, after a ladder, then do not take the misleading left turn into Green Spider, but keep right, traversing the hill, then after around 100m, do not take the left turn into LFW (signed: LFW welcomes you) but keep right traversing the hill and to complete a full blue SOT run.

In my video (see Videos of this trail) I turn into Green Spider!

Thanks to the builder for building all the chicken lines. That made it rideable for me after coming back from injury. If you ride all chicken lines, I would consider this a dark blue.

Hint: it is very easy at the end to go accidentally into 'Green spider" which has a short but chunky slab with a turn at the bottom. If you want to avoid that, better make sure you stay on SOT.

I rode this the other day after being away for 4 years. I may be remembering wrongly, but the top half (before the connector to other trails) seemed a lot more eroded and “techy” than before. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing but it is definitely tougher.

good reminder today that brackentrail is sometimes used as a climbing trail. good thing its early and the foliage cover isn't grown in so you can see down the trail a fair ways, otherwise it would have been an ugly head on with an e-bike crew coming up it today.

Such a great trail! Countless rock features to ride. Best of everything on this one. The climb to get to the trailhead is technical and demands a lot of energy. The trailhead is a large rock slab between a couple of trees and a small dip at the bottom.

Great to have an alternative to biking up the forestry roads. As a whole though, I think there's a bit too much descent for a climb trail. Enough to add 280m vertical up to half Nelson seems like a bit too much. Some people may enjoy it, personally I think a climb trail should be designed to efficiently get you to the top of the trails

It's actually one of the Squamish Classics that has a bit of everything. Super fast, tech, slabs, flow, jank. This trail has it all (except for grippy rock) and is a blast.

Is there a way to get to this trail without riding Entrails? Is entrails significantly more difficult? How does this compare to other slab trails in the area?

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?

Great option to check out some moderate Squamish rock slabs. A fun trail. Probably a dark blue level type trail.

A fun, challenging, but never crazy trail, in surprisingly good condition. One of Squamish's best.

Obviously a moto trail, and a bit scoured, but the rock challenges are mostly fun.

Another Man’s Gold is marked incorrectly on this Map. Fools Gold starts across from Half Nelson. Another Mans Gold starts directly across from the trail called Another Roadside Attraction.

Trail Entrails
Cory McKay and Derek Romanin actually built Entrails circa '97 when it exited on Mashiter just above rollercoster in a ditchy finish. Hoping to find the pic we took on opening day nailing in the cedar sign to post. Jim definitely put icing on it with the new finish and a shitload of work keeps it flowing thanks to the awesome trail crews in Squ'ish!

Half of the time you want a DH bike, half the time you want an XC bike, I guess that's Squamish for you!
