They were removed by CRD as they were blocking emergency vehicle access to sofa king. The intention is to rebuild the table top off to one side…

What happened to the tabletop and the little kicker to flat? Might need to change the description if the tabletop is removed. Seems odd to remove a feature that could easily be ridden around.

Caution to folks riding this down; this is the primary climbing trail for most folks using the main parking lot. There are a few blind corners which can be dangerous for folks climbing and not expecting a rider.

This access to the regional trail is not in CRD lands, it runs through private property and the trail are not maintained. Access to and from the regional trail is best from Robb Place.

Fun flowy trail in good shape. Glad I tried it.

Good to tie in with Say Ah or Daryl's Dive (if you are coming down from Fun Trail).

Trail Southridge
Upper part of this trail (where it meets Dave's line) is great. The trail fairies did an awesome job. Super fun until it meets with fun trail and turns off. The rest seems a waste of elevation. Some rocky (somewhat steep) portions followed by smooth boring trail with grown in salal and weeds. Fun trail is way better, or fun trail to Sofa King if you want something a bit smoother.

Trail Sofa King
This is fun. I’m more a fan of old-school tech and jank, but I like this trail from time to time when I feel like going fast and high.

Word of warning: make sure you know what the words “sofa king” sound like when said out loud before talking about the trail loudly in front of kids and their parents!! Good way to get stern looks Wink

One of my favorites. You have to go through a litter climb to get to it but after you do that its all downhill. Would recommend this to everyone in skill level. Just remember to use both brakes????????????????

Don't access this trail from the south end (Lakeridge Place Road). There are plenty of large trees down across the trail and it's not suitable for riding. Best to access the area from Robb Place when coming from the south.
