Lots of roots, drops, and holes. Even a few brief moments of exposire. The lower section gets increasingly technical as you descend and the final stretch before the climb out is really tough. This should be rated a black.

This is a black trail. Lots of holes, lots of root drops into holes. The last 200 yds of the decent is gnarly, often muddy, rooty and technical and very steep. Someone could get in big trouble thinking this is a blue- it simply isn’t. Probably will never ride this again and unless you have a minimum of 140mm front and back and consider yourself really good, don’t try it, especially wet.

This is one of the few trails at Galbraith the gets pretty soft, and thus prone to damage, when it’s raining.

I’m beginning-intermediate and enjoyed this trail while recognizing I wasn’t riding it to it’s potential either.

This trail is not that great its a huge haul to the top and the only really fun part of the trail is the upper part with the chuncky chute before you cross the trail to go down other section of the trail then that it's nothing really special id do it again but not what I hoped for. Blue trail all the way down less 2 parts there a chuck chute at the top and a blow out in between chute in the middle that give this trail the black badge. If you go around the middle part it's a blue all day.

One of the best natural trails on Galbraith. Should definitely be rated a black as it has more roots and exposure than just about any other black on gabby and there really aren’t ride arounds. Climb out is kinda brutal but can go into Keystone for some good flowy XC.

This is a great trail. I take Whoopsie up then across per previous post. Before you even get to Cougar Ridge you get in some great single track - and will likely not meet another person. Cougar has some technical parts and drops in place (it is a Ridge). Nice descent down part of Rufus then start the grind back using Bottoms Up.

Don't ride this trail. It sucks and you will be disappointed. If you get lost and end up in Sudden Valley, the locals will cannibalize you, sell the organs they don't eat to the Indonesian black market and burn your expensive ass carbon bike as a sacrifice to their pagan gods. Just stick to Galbraith people. It ain't worth your safety.

This is an epic trail! - deep forest loam with some rocks/slabs and tricky bits. Kind of a nasty climb back up Road 4000, but I have heard of people hopping on the bus in Sudden Valley to get back to Whatcom Falls Park. Access is via the road past Whoopsie Woodle, go right at the Spacewolf turn-off, and the trail starts a little way down on the left. Take the right about a half mile down to get to Cougar Ridge, otherwise you are riding Waterfall Trail. Great to see it is now "official".

There is an issue with this trail as it turns off at Moena. There has been logging in the area that seems to have obliterated this green trail. I could not ride over the debris field from logging activity.
