Dark blue trail, getting bed in nicely with time. Phenomenal trail!! I’m not really into butter smooth blue trails, so the extra tech plus speedy flow made it soooo good!

Definitely a black trail. Mostly manageable, but there are a few tricky sections with high exposure/consequences. If you've never done it before just keep your speed in check

Amazing shore like experience. I would rate this a black. Most blue rider I know would find this too high of consequence.

Has promise, as with previous comments, still needs some work to smooth out the ragged sections and increase the flow. Definitely a couple of dark dark blue to light black sections.

Good fun! Pretty rugged in the upper third but lots of fun little side hits and some good corners. Even better when combined with Flovid!

Lots of fun, thumbs up to the trail builders! Could be rate to black or an extra dark blue. I think it will become an okanagan favorite!

This trail is already pretty nice. The first quarter of it still need a bit of work. But the remaining 3 quarters are awesome.

Its a bit stiff to start off the parking lot but once warmed up its a good prep for the other trails.

Super exposed with some nasty tight switchbacks and off camber traversing. Not my cup of tea.

This is listed here as a black, but the NOCS signage and their iPhone app clearly indicate it is a Blue.
