This is a fine beginner trail, it is a black if you go full speed and hit all the jumps as gaps. Anyone can roll them if they want though.

After climbing for the first time, couldn't stop noticing all the old blue plastic baby tree protectors still lying on the ground after 10 years or so.

Not a black. Good beginner trail, but if you’ve spent time in Squamish or Whistler it’s probably a waste of elevation. Make some of the doubles into tabletops and add a wood feature or two and it would probably be better.

Great trail. Rock rolls are all very well selected, easy and difficult lines to each one. Little big of exposure also keeps you on your toes.

Start out with OFN to for the nice big rock and then these ones are a little steeper but techy.

Absolutely epic trail! Great finisher after Fine China. Really picks up speed with the pump-track-esc feel!

Trail is now open from Europa through the slash. A bit soft but rideable

Favourite trail in Nanaimo so far. All the rock rolls are doable and really fun.

Open. Not sure why it’s a black. Blue in my books. Lots of fun!

Lower section is closed off - looks like a forestry project.
