High Point

Departing from Corsa Cycles, this loop heads up to Perth Ave to access a mix of fun and flow, with a few technical features thrown in too.

You can choose to ride either Miki's Magic, or Slippery Salmon at the northernmost point, and for an extra challenge, pedal past Leave of Absence to ride down Rupert instead.

A stop at Alice & Brohm Real Fruit Ice Cream on the return pedal makes for perfect end to the trails for the day.

Loved this trail, tons of tech for an intermediate trying to progress to black. Definitely a more challenging blue in the area but nothing you can't walk if you're not ready. Many optional features like rock rolls and finishes off with a super fun flow.

I would consider this a very easy blue. Mostly green but one or two tech sections that are easy to walk. The sudden uphill in the middle caught me off guard. Overall really fun and great for beginners trying to progress.

A great tech trail. Some spicier options to progress on. Recent work making it even better. Thanks to the trail builders!

Rode this trail yesterday (May 30th, 2022) and was pretty confused, dropped in expecting a "fast and flowy Blue+ trail" and was gifted with a chunky, technical black. Its a sick trail, and well built, but certainly not a flowy intermediate trail, so rider beware.

Basically Rupert but easier with less climbs. Good as an introduction to rock rolls along with Rupert

Previously posted on Bike Squamish as an FYI; (Photos added in photos). Cheers and feel free to vote on this trail if you liked it. Thanks RP

In case you didn’t know I built LOA a couple of seasons ago. I volunteer my time maintaining this trail and others I’ve had a hand in. I like too and don’t expect anything from it. So having said that I have made a small change to the first tech feature. This takes out that double thump feeling and doesn’t scrub your speed. It’s an improvement. I’m not dumbing it down as some will assume, I have smartened it up. I’m posting this as heads up when you roll into it. You still have the little drop at the bottom so pay attention. This feature will still be black for a lot of riders and probably quite green for others like myself. I probably had about 10 people of all levels ride it today and they quite liked the change. I’ll post some bonus time lapse of the install after this. Cheers Enjoy and somebody go get Goldie’s KOM!

Great super fun blue trail. Switchbacks and flowy. It must have taken a lot of work. Great to ride fast or slow, as you wish.

The trail is simply awsome, obviously a lot lot of work and thought have been put into it, but it is a black diamond trail. There is nothing intermediate or blue about this trail. Beware.

A classic SQUAMISH trail for the past 25 years that wraps up any ride ending on Perth with a big smile on your face. A crowd favorite for the Test of Metal. Good for any rider. Beginners may find the last pitch worth a walk.

This is an amazing trails! Modularsynth's description is great. As a newer rider it was nice to check out and ride some more technical areas while on a very flowy ride. Thank you builders!

Great work trailbuilders! Excellent mix of flowy trail with some optional harder features, little ups and fun downs, and beautiful scenery. A great addition to the network and so much fun to go for a ride on its opening day!

ModularSynth (Apr 11, 2017 at 14:09)
Wow long, fast and flowy! Despite this being a blue trail there are 4-5 spots through out the trail where you can challenge yourself with a black diamond alternate route for each technical section, i love that. Also some well crafted wood bridges and a few smallish rock slabs to roll out on.

A big thank you to Rob phoenix and all the volunteers and sponsors who whipped this trail into shape in such a short time (given the rather long cold and snow heavy winter we had).

Really a great trail for just about any level rider that was definitely needed in this part of Alice lake.
