Get a taste for some of the more beginner friendly Smithers downhill. Not quite like the steep and rooty typical Smithers. This ride lets you get a nice pedal up Longway and a smoothish ride down Auntie Flo.
Not without its challenges this is likely one of the easier laps on the Bluff.

      Trails are very muddy, partially snow covered. If you find yourself riding around more puddles than dirt please consider packing it in, cleaning your bike and getting ready for ski season! reporter
