This trail seemed much harder than a blue for some reason! ‍♀️ Technical single track

Trail Boot Chute
Probably the best climbing trail if you want to get to the top quickly.

Excellent fun tech climbing trail. Similar to but a bit easier than the climbing part on Rodeo.

Found a wheel at the Pineview parking lot. Take a look at the Kamloops Bike Riders Association Facebook page for contact info to get it back.

Trail Hard Rock
Love this trail! You got a rocky climb... Brilliant! A fantastic view at the top... And a descent that comes not without its fair share of risk.

This is a great trail. It's rated black due to the rocky stuff at the top and I assume the steep washed out sandy part at the bottom. The rest is not that hard. Flows really well and the jumps and doubles are a lot of fun. The rocky parts of Stubby's are a bit tougher. An intermediate rider can ride easily from where it crosses the access road and turn out to Boot Chute when crossing through the cabin.

Great trail. But being an (you'll assume arrogant) staunch Shore rider this trail is a blue at best! Pretty easy stuff but still a blast!

This trail is a masterpiece, effortless flow ans scattered throughout are jumps berms and little features like rock gardens and log bars to keep you on your toes. Most fun descent in pineview by far.

Definitely a black trail, not blue. Multiple steep rock lines at the top, a few (mostly low consequence) gaps in the middle, one steep silty slalom line near the bottom. Beware of the blind rock jump to gap about half-way down. Look before you launch.
