Considering this is the only way to/from Alice Lake the northshores really should be wider to allow disabled or people coming back from injury to use it.

Such fun! Lots of variety to the rock features. Some lines worth scoping out as you can't see the exit from the top of the feature.

As an intermediate trying to progress this was a challenging but doable trail. There were many rock rolls I could practice on and only one that I had to walk. Lots of fun tech.

I don't think this climb trail is nearly as difficult as the climb trail to Half Nelson. It's pretty straight forward with a few switchbacks and tech.

I rode this the other day after being away for 4 years. I may be remembering wrongly, but the top half (before the connector to other trails) seemed a lot more eroded and “techy” than before. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing but it is definitely tougher.

Don’t think the climbing is bad heading east. Wouldn’t go out of my way to do it, but if need be it’s totally fine. Lose rocks, but never too steep nor technical.

An awesome legacy ride. This is a 2 way trail, but only
room for one in the long bridge over the bog. Eyes open and show respect. Don’t taking the bridge when others are already mid-span.

Trail Entrails
Such an amazing trail! The top part is a bit cross-country with some tricky root, rock, and log riding but then it gets into full on rock slabs that are terrifying at first but definitely doable after a look and some sessioning. Other trail favorites in Squamish are:

Definitely one of the harder black trails around with a lot of different features, roots and bridges at the start, a bit of a climb, some fun steep stuff and the infamous whaleback... Kudos to those who can clean it.

Nice and tacky thanks to some morning rain.
In good shape, minus the "turkeys" riding down the trail skidding around each turn.
Is a flashing neon sign required at the top?

Trail Entrails
Cory McKay and Derek Romanin actually built Entrails circa '97 when it exited on Mashiter just above rollercoster in a ditchy finish. Hoping to find the pic we took on opening day nailing in the cedar sign to post. Jim definitely put icing on it with the new finish and a shitload of work keeps it flowing thanks to the awesome trail crews in Squ'ish!
