Green to red is mostly uphill. Entire trail is elevated rock, shouldn't ever be any standing water on it. Easy connector.

There was a no parking sign at the recommended parking location. I parked in the big parking lot near School and Main and rode up the hill. The trail is indeed a bit tricky to find, but drcamero's directions are very helpful.

Trail 1st Bluff
Realistically this is not a MTB trail. If you are up here take the parallel trail to this one. This is a lot of Hike/Bike, even for the experienced rider, and there are a lot of hikers which is inconvenient for both you and them. The other trail is really pretty good and gets you up and down to see the bluffs.

Trail Whitetail
Came up from Halifax with two buddies for a weekend of riding the Fundy Shore Trailsystems (White Rock, FundyNP, Sussex Bluffs, and Poley Mtn). Whitetail was a favourite both ways, but especially down! Nicely bench-cut, fairly wide and flowy, and well-contoured to allow recovery in-between climbs. Keep up the great trail-building!

Went down for my first time on my dirt jump bike and loved it you can gain a crazy amount of speed! if your skilled enough you can get a bit of air time! would definitely recommend having good working brakes for this trail and keep an eye open for people coming up!

Would love to see Black Hole have a return connection to the top of Green Snake. Would also love to see Green Snake be single track top to bottom, as well. Epic trail as is, but would be potentially world class if it finished. Happy to help with the building, if someone knows who to contact.

The single track is great. As mentioned, access is tricky. Wish I had more time to ride it over and over.

Ok run but the porcupine, missing tooth, and garrys memorial are all better. They seem to be the best trails out of the 6 we tried.

Drcamero's directions are spot on, biked it yesterday and wished I had read his comment beforehand. Trail is one of the best I've ridden in NB, I'll be back sooner than later.

Good trail both ways, but nice to ride up it and clear any branches, etc, then reap the full rewards on the way down. It is
mostly smooth well groomed singletrack, with a few rocky rooty sections. Lots of fast rolling terrain and a few curvy sections. Looks like they were building a new section to bypass the steeper rooty sections, but it was fun as is. Keep an eye out for the occasional
hiker. There's a few nice stream crossings nicely spaced along the trail to keep the 4 legged trail goers hydrated

Trail Green Snake
Nice natural singletrack, loamy and soft. Climb right to the end of the trail, and then turn around enjoy some of the nicest flowy descending in the east. Had a bit of trouble finding the entrance, keep your gps handy to make sure u dont go too far on the atv trail. Must turn right up what looks like water runoff rocky trail, then the trail entrance is further up that on the left. A bit of straight uneventful double track mid trail but the rest of it more then makes up for it.
