May Contest time

This is a special YOUTH ONLY loop. Youth riders are more then welcome to drag their parents along with them. Ride this loop and get your name entered for a draw prize. Each time you ride the loop your name will be entered. Not a race, just ride the loop and have fun doing it. Time to Hammer at the Fest in beautiful downtown Errington, BC!

The usual rocks and roots, twists and turns with one hike-a-bike up to Wally Jr. A portion of the new trails in the ER Falls Park are included, give you something super fun and exciting at the end.

Let Roxanne know when and how many loops you've done!

Contest starts Monday, May 3rd and ends on Monday, May 31st.

Awesome little loop with 6 and 8 yo daughters. Rode little dipper, up Milky Way then did multiple laps on this. They loved it. Rode it clockwise.

Great climb up. Nice mellow grade and good amount of woodwork to it a lot of fun.

Not sure how people are calling this a climber... pretty manageable for the most part but minimal traction and a 12” step up on two very steep sections make pushing almost a guarantee. Please change designation to DH Only.

Nice climb trail. If you're bringing young kids it's more walk a bike than ride. Fun on the way down!

Smooth and clear trail with little to no rocks. perfect beginner trail for getting used to skinnies/boardwalks as the two in these are very wide.
