Aunt Flow / Flo's Diner is a much better climbing option.

Great for ebikes, boring as all hell for acoustic bikes.

Going to refer to it as the Caledonian Midstream Corp road (instead of Husky). I think it is catchier.

Great condition. A bit hard to breath with the smoke though.

The top bit still had a lot of snow but then was clear and dry, really nice shape. There is one quite large deadfall for watch for about halfway down

2018 before it was a sanctioned trail, it was awesome - loamy and flowy with some notable rock and log jumps. Now, in 2020 where it is a sanctioned trail, it's just full of brake ruts, rocks, and just rough and bumpy as your going down. You just hope you're not gonna get a flat or worse, get a pair of dented rims. Not worth the climb on Husky road to do this trail anymore.

Trail is in good condition but make sure you slow down for the cattle gate if your biking with your dog. The gate is on the lower section of the trail near the end.

@Drewdietze you make some good points and under the IMBA guidelines www.imbacanada.com/resources/maps/trail-difficulty-ratings
this trail would likely be rated more difficult however compared to all the other trails in the system and the intention of the trail (learn to downhill) I think it is rated correctly.

Also worth noting that, while it is listed as blue here, the trail signage reads as green. This makes sense in the context of the area as it is a noticeably easier trail than other blues in the Moose area. Something to keep in mind for newer riders tackling the Moose blues for the first time.

As intended, Family Guy does a great job bridging the gap from more XC-oriented riding in the K-country region to the DH specific trails at Moose Mountain. A good starting point before moving onto the more intermediate trails in the area.

Family guy is quite tight between trees with plenty of small rocks to navigate. This is not a beginner blue trail as you can gain speed quite quickly but must stay on a narrow dusty path with a steep roll down the mountain on your right side (when going downhill). Again, if you stay slower and under control you can manage past some smaller rocks on the trail but this really is for more advanced riders. We saw a family of 5 coming up who were apparently going to ride down and I couldn't believe it.
Anyways, you better have good brakes and strong hands (unless you have hydraulics) becau because you'll be on them most of the ride.

It's one of the easiest and simplest MTB trails in the area. And who rides without hydraulic brakes these days?

Super dry and looooooose, lots of cookies and debris. The usual shaded and low lying spots smattered throughout are ideal though. lol
