Trail Mow It Down
Should probably be a double black. It's old school, with tight turns, and janky. Did have some wicked features though. I found it challenging to keep a good flow. Personally I'd rather lap the lower trails that have more maintenance.

Definitely not a double black trail - hard blue for sure as it has ride arounds. Most of the features fit blue trail standard criteria

Loved this trail. Has a nice raw flavour. Nothing overly tech but just fun to ride.

Ended up on this after a big decent on Sunday afternoon from triple crown, deliverance, jumpline - once I hit BBT I was ready grinning. Fun trail, lots of flow.

Headed down this trail by mistake on my first trip out to Burke.

Hike-a-biked most of it because it’s a little beyond my comfort level but as at May 26 2020 I would not suggest riding it out yet.
Still very soggy from the winter, wooden features are pretty slippery and mossy.

One of the King Lines. Difficult black-double black-ish trail. It's like Disneyland with so many different features and super well built.

Hi Greg - I just saw your comment: Can you please confirm who posted the pictures you're referring to and I'll delink the ones that aren't correct from the trail. I just went through here on Nov 12 and posted a bunch from Ridden Art so I want to make sure they are right. Thanks!

Well all the pics on Ridden Art trail before your new great ones were of Recycle. What I think looks the best of course for trail pics is a rider riding some feature.

Steep and tight and full of loam. Not a lot of tech but that's a good thing when there's gnar o' plenty every where else.

Best trail on Burke, can be ridden in any condition, medium size jumps, drops, cool wooden features, but the ending is bit gnarly

Watch out for tree down at head level at the area Sox crosses the old Triple Crown Trail. I know it looks obvious but I’m in a lot of pain today having not seen it in the sunshine and with my visor blocking it. Be careful!!

Does anyone know what the maximum grade is on the road? The grade profile seems inaccurate.

A steep climb, but the road was fixed up in spring 2013 so there is far less loose rocks.
