Definitely a black trail. Mostly manageable, but there are a few tricky sections with high exposure/consequences. If you've never done it before just keep your speed in check

Fantastic climbing trail-enough tech to keep you on your toes but totally reasonable grade. Same goes for upper Stone Free which is less tech but a steady grade.

Trail Big Ed
Agree with the other comments. This is not a double black or even close. Needs to be regraded. A hard blue or an easy black. It’s a taste of the kootenays in the Okanagan.

Trail Big Ed
Not the best trail. Mostly a blue trail, with a few olds stunts (mostly rotted out). Lots of traversing, to a bit of up, to a bit of down. Good to do once but not worth the effort for another lap. Way over graded.

This is a black run, maybe blue. Definitely not an easy run.

More of a black than double black. A few old stunts in a state of mild disrepair. Plenty of loan, roots, rocks and fun.

Super exposed with some nasty tight switchbacks and off camber traversing. Not my cup of tea.

Great trail - old school rowdy tech with lots of features such as elevated log skinnies, ladder bridges and ladder drops. Just a bit too much traversing and climbing for my liking - kills the flow and momentum.

There is a tree down at the bottom of the trail where you climb up out of the parking lot to head to Sidewinder. I saw it Wednesday at noon, it isn't too big but needs to be cut out as I couldn't move it.

Fast and Flowy,
this is probably my favourite trail in Kal.
couple laps of this then shoot down into no boats on your way back out.

Nothing like a morning ride, followed by a refreshing dip in the lake at a beach that doesn't tend to get too busy.

This is listed here as a black, but the NOCS signage and their iPhone app clearly indicate it is a Blue.
