The rebuilt trail is fantastic! Great flow and really well designed jumps. Definitely double black to clear all the jumps, but forgiving if you case a few.

After climbing for the first time, couldn't stop noticing all the old blue plastic baby tree protectors still lying on the ground after 10 years or so.

Trail ASOP
Great trail. Rock rolls are all very well selected, easy and difficult lines to each one. Little big of exposure also keeps you on your toes.

Start out with OFN to for the nice big rock and then these ones are a little steeper but techy.

Favourite trail in Nanaimo so far. All the rock rolls are doable and really fun.

Some wasted their time on fixing this up. It flowed better before. The creek jump should of been rebuilt before touching this one.

I am sure the people who built this have ridden good trails before so not sure how they managed to mess this up. Its worse than before. Berms that should be supportive are 6 inches tall and berms that dont need it are 3ft and shaped nicely. I think whoever built this needs to re-assess what you are doing. It is very possible to build a green/blue flow trail that is also fun for advanced riders. Not renewing my membership if my money is going to this garbage

Just a heads up that the Monster drop on MJ is very slippery/greasy...could use some shingles.

Sad to see the creek jump removed. Rebuild when? Hopefully sooner. Gee, replace what you remove. Doumont use to be good 10 or more years ago. So many stunts removed; now, it is getting boring over the years. Blah. Return to the old school riding.

Good news sir, replacing what can be replaced and upgrading is the game plan! The trail just needs authorization from the landowner first, but some initial concepts are being discussed and the original builders are part of the planning!
