Not an enjoyable trail at all. 75% technical climbing. Overgrown and lots of spiderwebs.

A nice route taking in some of the less popular trails that are equally as fun. Worth doing this route.

Don’t think there is any plan to rebuild. The whole trail is getting pretty old and I don’t think anyone is willing to take on that big of a project. Still a sick trail

Such a fun trail with lots of fun wood features. All of them can be ridden around except the first bridge which you can walk if needed.

Came back after a year to sadly find the first feature completely destroyed. Shame it had to go as it’s a pretty unique trail that just doesn’t feel worth it anymore

That's too bad, I got a kick out of this trail. Do you know if there is any plan to rebuild or was it just taken out cause skinnies are not cool in 2022?

That sounded entitled on my part my bad ^. I'm just wondering whether the feature was taken out due to risk management or because it fell apart

Very nice blue trail. There are features you can go around. Still challenging enough. Thank you trail builders for the options.

Trail Middle 50:1
On July 7, 2017 I lost my Garmin 520 during the BCBR. We climbed up 50:1 to Cabbage Patch. It was on one of the final right hand turns before starting into Cabbage Patch. There was some congestion and I fell left at the turn. There is a downed log right atvthe corner. Unfortunately I didn't notice until we hit the fire road. If found please contact Kevin (403) 585-7740
