Well built flow trail. The whole trail rides nicely together with a mix of berms, tables, wooden features. Could session this multiple times and have fun. We rode this trail then climbed back up to do top notch, which is quite different. If you are looking for smooth flowy riding stick to Doing laps on this trail.

This trail should be done counter clockwise, fast decent narrow track could make for a bad collision

The features were built well and are so much fun! I immediately went for a 2nd round to catch some of the ramps I missed the first go around. Some of the features can look intimidating for less experienced bikers like myself, but you should absolutely give them a go cause they're doable.

Beautiful mini park feature trail with smooth sweeping berms that aren’t beaten to a pulp like most other trails this year. Ride this in combination with Topp Notch and you’ll experience everything enduro/XC riding has to offer on 2 short fun laps

Did this counter clockwise which seemed the best way. 6 yr old 10 yr intermediate riders ish and they did well only trouble area was some of the steep climbs and one down section

Fun loop. It should be counter clockwise only for fun and safety. Clockwise Bikers were getting annoyed by down hill riders flying down but it's silly to ride up a trail where all the jumps are pointing at you, non?

Superbe tracé. Star Wars est définitivement une de mes pistes préférées! Tous les niveaux peuvent y prendre du plaisir. On peut faire la boucle indéfiniment sans s’en lasser!

This trail had been improved a great deal in the late Summer, its getting better everytime and new routes appear to be marked out in the lower section where some of the corners are tired. Thanks for all the work BVMBA have and are doing here!

This trail should be one direction, if two riders hit came down one of the bits on the cliff people could get really hurt. There is simply no way to get out of the way.

I would not describe this as a tough blue. It starts with a descent that has good flow, nice berms, and a handful of cheese wedge jumps. Short and sweet. The climb back up as also very well laid out and not a savage grade. Would highly recommend sessioning and I think this is a standard blue if anything.

What a killer climb after the descent. I re-did some bits because I didn't manage to get up the first time with out putting a foot down.

Sessioned early morning, great track, wood ttf's could do with a bit of metal mesh on them, especially the wall, as really greasy, but dried during the day and speed picked up.

Rode Coastline last week and it's in great shape. The new optional line known as High Rollers is a blast!

Some ice/snow still present for about 100 meters on and off but other than that it’s a great run.

My first comment was supposed to say flat part, not fat.

We found this to be a tough blue. Not for the faint of heart and would not take our 8 and 10 year olds on it even though they have ridden many other blues with no problem. Going clockwise around the trail, there are a lot of very, very tight turns in the downhill section, the fat part was pretty fun and then a long, long twisty uphill. If you want to hit the technical features like the ramps, drops and jumps, take the trail counterclockwise.

Loved this trail. Really fun and flowy, a little technical but still easy. Can't wait to ride it again!

A bypass around the new and substantially more challenging section has been constructed. It will be nicer in the winter. Thanks!

A great trail for kids to have fun on while you're spending time in the campground. It relatively flat with a bit of up and downyness (that's a term, I'm sure.) So you can start working on flow and cornering.

A good beginner trail where you can start to focus on your flow and not just on pedaling. It's a fun way to get off the multi use trails and start to experience the corners rocks and roots that mountainbiking has to offer.

Beware that a short section of the trail has been modified towards the end if travelling CW. It is substantially more challenging, steep, narrow, on a side slope. Sorta ruins it for the novice rider, maybe winter riding.

I would definitely recommend running counter clockwise. Unless your into a steady quad burn from start to finish. Track is fast and Dusty when its good weather with some technical decents and climbs at the end. All around kick ass downhill.

Catch the trail from the campground trail or from the campground road. Easy to spot the start at the old water tower. Suitable for kids on a 16" bike with handbrakes who are ok with single track and some roots.

Our 4.5 year old loved this trail. The last section from the lookout to the road is quite steep. Suitable for younger kids, easily ridden on a 16" or larger. Hand brakes a must.

While technically fairly easy, many sections ride very close to the edge of the bench (aka falling off tunnel mountain). Not recommend for young or unsteady riders or anyone afraid of heights.
