Route aimed at riding all trails on trail forks. I started from the Big Eddy Side, into logging left overs, so starting from the parking lot would add a bit to it. I also didn't do the middle Bike Club as it's still listed as closed, but I did route it back up to do Snakes and Ladders, which isn't on trail forks, but allows you to do lower Iron Lotus than back over to Lower Boondocker.

Reason why upper part doesn't get brush cut or ridden? Lower is sick!

Amazing trail. Easier to ride than walk. Higher travel and bigger tires recommended.
A solid upper single black trail.
Steep at times. Roots!

Trail Boondocker
This is on the "must hit" list if you're in Revy and can shuttle. Steep, loamy trail full of berms, banks and root drops on the upper sections, then man made features on the lower section. Ride it from top to bottom as fast as possible, but stop at the rock roll and look around for all the other fun stuff in the vicinity. It intersects the logging road a few times so be aware of traffic.

Tree down in the middle of the long steep committing section (caution sign at top) soon after you first enter the woods. Otherwise great condition, a little bit of snow on top 5% of the trail.

Acess road is closed due to logging. Used boondocker and tall timber to link up to this trail.

Fresh wood work is mint, big ups to the builders. Nice rooty loam and big hucks.

Fun fast trail, technical with lots of loose rocks. This trail is steep and exposed as the top has no trees. Stays drier than the lower runs because of this. Not an easy trail to stop on so hit with confidence! Worth a lap but is a decent climb past boondocker as the climb gets steeper

Not a direct downline so the trail traverses a decent amount. Lots of wooden rollers which will test our average blue rider. If it's a wet time of year this trail will be the first to have lots of puddles. Currently it's the only puddly trail on the mtn and it's VERY puddly

This trail links in with boondocker but is totally flowy with great wooden drops and jump features. Very smooth compared to boondocker which is more of a technical line. Cant really go wrong on this mountain as every run is awesome!

The entire boondocker line is so much fun and one of the best trails I've ridden on my 1month tour of BC trail networks. This trail is a must hit if you are confident with blacks or want to test yourself. Lots of roots and drops to fly over

This trail could be called a bikepark blue. It's a DH trail which has great flow. It's the easiest line on the mountain. Starts with nice steep and smooth berms. When it goes into the tall tree line it gets a little rutted but nothing an intermediate rider can't send ???????? my girlfriend has looped this trail 10+ times in the last few days while I go higher. A great fast line for me too though

Hated this. Steep berms that are difficult to walk. Harder than b-line in Whistler Bike Park. Very dry and loose. Should be a black

Gnarley trail, very rocky at the start, bring a spare tube:0 Switches to long steep rooty/rocky sections.
Advanced trail. Challenging and fun. Second half of trail starts just to the right, once on service road. Looks seldom used.
Meets up with my favorite trail on boulder mtn. Logging leftovers. From parking lot up and back down at a quick pace takes 1h20.

Newer track= rough, dusty and a bit sketchy for a beginner/intermediate like me. I am very new to downhill riding with most of my experience coming from cross-country. Maybe after more use from other riders and a day of rain it would be more enjoyable.
