Still riding great, even though the rest of the trail system is way too dry right now. The dirt in here is still tacky and holding up.

This is not a green trail. Newbies are going to be doing a lot of pushing on this climb.

For the Dogs

For someone who has had two Hamster eras, it was a bit of a shock to return to trails that were once a fun, steep and empty fitness loop in the aughts and find that this loop is now dominated by loose dogs and their owners. Its awesome that that this fido crew now has a place to play off leash on trails inside the city—and totally in favor of giving all user groups their dedicated zones—but be prepared to be in the minority as a cyclist and be ready for around 25-50 loose dogs (mostly with respectful owners) on a weekend ride. It’s now their zone. Still fun and steep short loop with moderately challenging descents…but more matched as a place to roll if your border collie wants to run a little loose on your ride. Use the power line trail to turn this into a lollipop loop, the last section southwest is a super steep hike-a-bike with semi-pro steep downs.

This is one of the few trails at Galbraith the gets pretty soft, and thus prone to damage, when it’s raining.

I’m beginning-intermediate and enjoyed this trail while recognizing I wasn’t riding it to it’s potential either.

Top half is definitely a solid black - extremely steep root drops and a mandatory wooden rolling feature and narrow bridge. Very tricky for an intermediate.

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.

Very technical, I would say black or double black in some spots. Very steep. The beginning is very mellow though. Very tight switch backs farther in the trail that were barely doable on a bike.

Rad trail . New optional line at the bottom If you stay left instead of right is more like a pro line rated trail with huge gap jumps and hips.

The new Alt line is super awesome! The first step down/step up gap is looking great after the rebuild, along with the rest of the gaps being refaced. The views are quite awesome as well!

Machine built groomed trail. So much flow and rhythm. Holds up really well in the wet months as well as the dry. The builders put in so many options to challenge your skill level as you get more familiar with the trail. Best on Galbraith which is full of great lines.

Fantastic and fun easy intermediate trail with lots of optional jumps or you can simply ride around them. There is however a tricky section at a junction called "checkpoint Juliet". If you are an advanced rider, you can drop into it after it crosses the access road. If you are more intermediate, take a left at the checkpoint, ride a short distance downhill and then join up with SST with a MUCH EASIER access trail.
