Trail Atomic Dog
Atomic Dog is one of my favourites, the jumps in the middle that they did this summer are pretty nice. It gives a nice workout on your arms, and it's a lot different than a lot of the trails! Highly recommend!

This trail is a dream, it's so flowy, awesome jumps and of course the legendary SST drop! I highly recommend, Unemployment line is also an awesome trail for lesser skill

The top of this trail has a wood sign that says Air Chair. Kind of confusing but it does connect.

Actually one of my favorites on the mountain. A nice technical XC trail with tons of roots and rocks with some good descending. Good rock roll too!

Great trail for all skill levels. If your intermediate or advanced, the jumps are amazing. For beginners just the flow of the trail is a heck of a ride. The berms are massive.

Trail Tough Love
Tough Love was designed to be ridden as a decending and climbing Trail. The orignal idea was to have alternative to The Wall as climb and classic natural feature decending trail that makes you work to clear the root and rocky sections. Roll them fast. From Orig builder designer :-)

Would rather ride up the road then work my way up this again. Too much undulation for a climb trail, would rather just grind the road.

Def DH feel, def not my fav. Runs fast and fun, but’ll bring out those worrying bike noises that you’ve been trying to ignore on your old jangler. That’s just my bottle cage or that’s just my cables caressing my frame right? Enjoyed it but could never ride it again 5/10 bb

Not sure what happened this Spring with the rebuild, but new lips are Way too Steep, trail flow has gone from fast and flowy to dirt jumps with consequence. Appreciate the trail work, but this trail is almost sketchy now, in need of a shave. Be careful out there folks.

The trail is definitely has gotten more aggressive with bigger and faster jumps. I for one love it, but my girlfriend likes it less. Not much separation between U-line and Mohawk, get ready to send it.

Fantastic trail made possible by the lack of regular maintenance, probably my favorite trail at Galby. Great if you're looking for a more raw and natural trail experience. Feels like a DH track. Just be careful of wet roots, they'll catch ya on this trail when you least expect it.
