As one would expect, the community has created a nice detour to keep this route a go.

I really enjoyed this trail, good for beginner riders. However, it ends at the treatment plant where there is a locked gate. You either turn around and take it back to the entrance, or go over the gate and straight up a hill on the main road back to Cameron Heights. It is overgrown and plants hit your legs, but nothing gnarly.

Riding this trail westbound is like having to eat your carrots to get your ice cream (Purgatory)

Insanely steep trail, make sure you have good breaks... It’s a great technical trail with emphasis on line choice. If you take the wrong line all hell could break lose but overall it’s a must hit if you’re in the Terwillegar area.

Relatively flat. Can definitely practice your turning on sandy or gravel trail. You can go fast but watch out for others coming in the other direction. There are some blind corners.

Scenic ride. Smooth, paved and flat. Great for family with younger kids (6+) and it leads to Terwilleger Park footbridge!

Favourite trail in the city! Watch out for the turn before the bridge- it comes up pretty fast.

Possibly the prestige trail of the Terwilliger area. Well designed and crafted, well done by the builders.

Why rename this trail from "Squeal like a Pig" to "Bed Springs" when the other trail west of it is called "Deliverance"? Should leave the trail names as is.

This is one of the few trails that I have not ridden in the City. What makes "Squeal Like a Pig" a black diamond run when compared to other trails in Edmonton?

Arguably the climbs are steeper and more technical. Lots of roots, narrow sections, combined with corners to make the riding more advanced.

I think The Golf Course Trail is the more common name, but you could leave Roller Coaster as an alternate. Mitch should also correct the spelling of "Terwillegar" (this is the correct spelling) on all the numbered trails.
