Super fun! Steeper at the top but super rideable and some nice almost off camber sections keep it interesting, before it opens up into fast, flowing somewhat narrow single-track. But the kind of single-track where you can pump or pop off so many roots. Such a blast. Gets flatter right towards the end. Don't ride hedonism after it though, it sucks.

Fresh tree down on the west side of the trail. Too big to move by myself but I cleared some branches

Ditto to Dendens: very bumpy from all the roots. Not that flowy. Steep near the top, which is fun, but wastes your hard -earned climbing quickly.

It’s a long grind up and the trail is not very interesting. A straight ride down, very easy. If you like a fast down without technical this is the trail for you. It should be rated a Blue

Packed full of steeps, flowy berms, drops, step downs (rollable), tables, banks, gaps, you name it. Well maintained, but also very sheltered so it takes a few extra days to dry out. Your trip to fernie isn’t complete without a rip down Eric’s.

If you ride it to access Stupid traverse, make sure you take the fork at Moc-assassin. The top section of lactic is way too steep to be rideable, even on an E bike.

Not recommended in winter time as the trail is quite deep with snow. My fat bike stayed above the snow, however, difficult climbs meant getting off the bike and the snow was past my knees.

A bunch of little features, good trail to practice on. It's definitely a different vibe riding through a logged area instead of a forest though, so don't come for the "scenery"!

I am glad i "rode" this trail...so i NEVER have to do it again. this is not a ride so much as a bike push path. Totally not worth it. Better to ride up the bottom of s-bomb and ride brokeback. whatever little you gain of Sbomb by is not worth the push a bike experience - unless you LIKE taking your bike for a hike
