Long Sleeves or get the Meatdraw. Tie it in with Upper Meatdraw and Lower Lower Meatdraw (unnamed but Gnarly) and get the feeling back in your arms in a week or 2.

The first half is really loamy and more technical. The lower has a bit of this but is more flowy and has some really fun smaller jumps. Great fun!

Trail Spur Road
Access from Nanaimo lakes rd has been blocked off with 5 or 6 tank traps that are a bit of a pain to even walk a bike through. Would be nice if the connecting section was removed from the map.

Kudos to the builders, this is an awesome example of "natural flow" and use of grade. So much bang for buck and arguably fun for any skill level. Wish there were more like it!

Vehicles blocking gate and new signage saying no trespassing. Private security driving around. Is the forest company now blocking access to these roads/trails?

Lots of trees down on the trail that we couldn’t move on the 3rd section. Orange tape for the falling boundary.

A great descent. Enough roots and bumps to keep it interesting but few challenges, just a really pleasant ride. Lovely descent went combined with Sexy Flanders, max Power and Hutz.

Trail is in great shape right now, perfect dirt. Rode down the trail, there are a few fun kickers to hit. Seems like a decent climbing trail as well. There is a sign at the bottom to warn climbers to watch for oncoming riders, so I'd say its a 2 direction trail. The other climbing option, E&M, is also nice but requires much more fire road climbing as well. Both are good options IMO.

Motos tracks on the top section of this trail, where the descent begins to the first fire road crossing. They really tear up the precious loam. Frig off dirt bikes.

Looks like a lot of moto guys have been riding this recently given the tire tracks in there. Getting really chewed up given how pristine it was pre-snow.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy goodness with a pile of long off camber slabs that'll test your nerves or bone strength if it's wet. Good good fun.
