one of the best trails in Manitoba. love the natural technical terrain. Canadian shield riding at its finest There are so many natural drops and such with the rocks and boulders, it makes for a great day.

Rode it today after helping with some trip build and was fun. Unfortunately my Trail Forks somehow lost the recording of my ride. ????
