A way to tie in most of the best trails on Paskapoo Slopes in under an hour. Recommended to follow the direction shown on the trails, as some are a lot more fun to descend than climb.

Trail Turtle Soup
Some TS leader rides show 150m others 440m. Something glitchy or did trailforks trail change last couple years?

Trail Paddock
When you ride Paddock towards Paddock Alternative, Trailforks records it as 'Slim Shady' a trail marked as sensitive and deletes map from ride log. Can someone check that and correct it?

That is pretty much my usual Paskapoo ride, other than coming and going via the Backdoor, as I ride over via Bowmont. Often for a bit extra I turn left at Ridge Run-SFD junction and then do a "down Hawkeye -Turtle Soup, up Mr. T" loop and/or a climb up Jungle combined with a descent on one of the "unmapped" trails.
