It's partly open to vehicles, there are gates at spurs and sections where there is active forestry work. Best bet if leaving a vehicle on mountain and retrieving it afterwards is probably driving to bottom of Middle Earth, there is some space to park a few vehicles there. Road can be rough in places but I wouldn't say that a car definitely wouldn't make it.

The section parallel to the Wetlands View Dry Trail is super flooded, the whole length of the section. Your feet well be wet unless you bushwack and drag your bike in the puddle next to you. The other sections were great!

This is a fantastic climbing trail that will be a good technical challenge for most riders. You will be active the entire climb as there are no sections where you can just sit and peddle for an extended period of time. Newer intermediate riders and/or less fit may end up walking frequently. I can't wait to go back and try to clean more of it.

The snow line is at 3.7km into the trail. You can hike to the top of rusty trombone. Just add about 30 minutes onto your ride

Trail Nimby
Nimby was designed by a Sadist. It relentlessly and frustratingly takes you up tight techy steep
switchbacks littered with roots and rocks, only to flatten out and descend the elevation you just climbed. Guess what, to another switchback. Rinse, repeat, like 1000 times. Do yourself a favor and take the FSR. Unless of course you enjoy beating yourself with a stick in your spare time.

Downhill trails in BC are pretty wicked; i'm used to trails in the US and to me this felt like maybe “one and a half black diamonds”. Definitely not double black, but a few lines were quite impressive with no ride-arounds. I could pick my way down those features, but i wasn't ready to ride them "the right way". Pretty good flow with good sight lines and few surprises, and several optional “big boy” lines. Loose and dusty with rocks when i rode during a dry spell - surely it would tack up with rain but some slopes are pebbly in the dry.
One of the few trails I encountered in BC without any wooden structures; the trail is all natural but expertly built. It makes good use of rocks for features and feels playful. While there are some stiff moves, there's no scary exposure so it would be a good place to work on getting out of your comfort zone if, like me, you're not quite as badass as these BC riders all seem to be!

Trail Nimby
I consider this the very definition of a blue singletrack tech climb. There's a sprinkling of roots and rocks throughout, in a variety of shapes and sizes (without getting huge). Some occasional “moves” to punctuate the climb, but no exposure or big skills required to clean them. Lots of switchbacks: some tight, some steep, some bumpy - but none that were all three. The climb is steady, at a very nice grade that you can either enjoy or attack without blowing up. Somewhat narrow, sidesloped tread, but no exposure.
It's a beautiful forest with occasional overlooks...in general the whole length of the trail has good variety in terrain, trail, and views, with a difficulty level (both in tech and fitness) that goes up and down a little, but is solidly intermediate. A great way to get up a hill.

Trail is in great shape, a little loose in corners but good for getting drifty! There's a couple branches hanging low and in the way, but you can plow thru or under them.
