Segment 1: 7th secret

7th Secret is an all-weather, heavily armoured bike trail flowing from just before the seventh switch-back on mountain hwy back to the sixth switch back between Pipeline and Expresso. The few ladders, bridges, jumps and log rides are easier than you might at first expect, but sometimes come at you by surprise, so you may want to go easy on your first descent. The more difficult stuff mostly has easier workarounds.

Segment 2: Leppard
Short XC Rolling contour trail that has lots of pedalling and tight twisty technical sections on an armoured trail bed.

Segment 3: Crinkum Crankum
Crinkum Crankum starts with a series of tight technical switchbacks, then descends a number of steep and often slippery ramps.

Segment 4: Lower Area
Tight, twisty turns flow at you one after the other. Optional wood roll downs and even a log ride at the end offers a little extra to the advanced rider.

This is an awesome route. Perfectly balanced finishing off the hard parts with something all little more relaxed. Although Crinkum Crankum can get pretty sketchy in the wet the rest of the trails are just fine in the wet weather. Overall this is a fun route for an intermediate bike looking for a fun descent.

Getting really quite eroded. A lot of loose rock and janky angled roots. Nothing major, but a lot of small issues. reporter
