From Brennan Park our basecamp you will ride through town and up into the Garibaldi Highlands leaving suburbia behind. From pavement to fire road it won’t be long till you hit your first singletrack Roller Coaster, cross Perth road then Lumberjacks.
Climbing up to Jacks trail, an upward trending traverse to 50 Shades of Green one of the newest climbing trails in Squamish - 8-10 minutes of elevation gain will have you descending Leave of Absence. Then hammer up the Tracks from Hell. One more short climb up Rock N Roll to Rob’s corners and Aid 1, whew what a start.
Linking across to the middle section of Squamish takes a bit of a fire road and patience but it’s well worth the effort. Down Skookum and across the connector bridge called George’s Crossing it’s up to the now legendary ‘Pump Flow’ trail called Half Nelson, hang on as you hoot and holler your way down. Another short fire road traverse puts you at the top of Pseuda Tsuga 1, 2, and 3.
Up the road, across another bridge, Darwins Crossing and we are making our way to the top of the Powerhouse Plunge, this is where the rocks and roots get thick and furious. Turning right we head up to Hoods in the Woods, yet more epic fun that demands your attention, but delivers and rewards your efforts. Aid 2 arrives just after Hoods and from there you must climb one more series of trails in Crumpit woods as you make your way around the Smoke Bluffs and head for home.
