Pretty awesome as far as climb trails go! I didn't find the downhills in the area very compelling.

The new "Dessert Platter" work is exceptional for its quality. I noticed that the work was not only top notch but the finishing touches. Example - rock cribbing in uphill corners and benchcut; then topped with dirt; then narrowed and finally renaturalized with soil and moss. Incredible attention to detail

Works great as a decent trail if don't fancy riding the lower janky chunder of Beaver Pass. However watch for climber's priority.

An easy trail along the power lines that weaves back and forth.

I agree with the others. A great use of the terrain and a fun flowy rip.

Great addition to this network as it makes for an easier traverse South from the Northern flank trails. Surprisingly long trail with lots of flow, one of the easiest trails on the Westside

Its definitely not a blue run! Its very rocky and has steep bits in it. At the start of the trail its classified as a black trail! We enjoyes taking our bike for a walk on bits. Good views though!

This trail seems to have been mostly destroyed by a new road for hydro crews. The trail crosses the road many times but is almost unrecognizable anymore and we had a very difficult time locating the trail until the last 1/2 mike where we turned off on A La Mode

if you'll notice the description it's listed as a secondary access road due to the reactivation.

The current situation on lower sproat, in technical terms, is a$$-raped. Needs to be regraded, lots of areas of solid mud, occasional snow.

There's a few exposed sections on the down hill side. Don't fall off. Rode it down for the first time today, Feels like it would be a pretty tough slog going up.

A fun narrow single track climb with a good pitch and a few breaks in the right spots where it mellows out for a bit. Great views too make this an enjoyable way to get up to the Flank from the North.

Trail A Cut Above
Nice work everyone concerned! I do have a question....why is this primarily an uphill/climbing trail? I would have assumed it was more of a descent trail. Why would a trail climb up to a more difficult trail (Beaver Pass) that is primarily heading downhill? It doesn't seem logical to climb up A Cut Above, only to ride the last half of Beaver Pass. Or am I missing something? Thanks again for building new trails!

it's a return route back into Stonebridge if you come down Wizard, or via Rebob/27 Switchbacks if one was headed south, it's just a quicker route back up to get back to the goods. It joins with Beaver Pass just below the top and it's an easy pedal to Stonebridge Drive where you can hit Danimal south or back into 99'er, or back up to Flank.
