Loved this. Wish it didn’t end. We used it to ride back to town.

Long road to ruin, is literally a long road to ruin. You will be ruined. But you will also be ruined on Georgetown, only that's a much shorter road to ruin. Personally, I think Georgetown is the way to go. Neither way is pleasant

Long Road to Ruin is a great climb out of the valley after you have descended Odessa or Coal Chutes. Ignore anything “Bre-Dude” has posted, as he clearly hasn’t a clue.

Rideable but where the f*ck is the fun at? I mean SUPER jarring...not a single view. On my third time taking this run I decided I never want to be on it again. Stupid f*cking trail. EKG more north and below the beginning of odyssey may be the only sensible enjoyable part?

Yet again a perfect example of wtf on this app OR the nordic center is just horrifically designed. Killer bees would be one of the better runs at nordic but here we go again with these c*nts telling you to bike UP a track when it's really obvious you should be going the opposite way. Too bad there's no good way to get to it. For anyone who doesn't understand Nordic center definitions yet...
Cross country (have fun going uphill pussy)
Technical (our trails are the roughest you could imagine)
Full suspension (did we mention we have the worst terrain possible)

Blue coal chutes IS fun. Don't f*cking exit to long road to ruin. Don't listen to anyone saying long road to ruin is both ways...that trail going in THAT direction is f-u-c-k-i-n-g horrid. I'm convinced the only sane way out of this area is georgetown interpretive.

Trail EKG East
Rideable for me (intermediate blue, mtb) but no fun. Maybe I just like more flow, but it felt like there was no reward for the unending jarring. I found there to be lots of crossings with other fast trails, so I couldn't get into groove. Lots of roots made for a dicey ride after a passing shower. I eventually gave up and took Meadowview (MV on the map, = greyed out access road) to Odyssey - way more scenic and fun.

Just a steep fire road. I recommend riding/pushing up to then ride down back door.

Another great trail. Again easy going up, fast and flowy going down and a couple line choices along the way. Love it

Short but sweet, couple of tricky drops but nothing you don't see coming and can't walk around. One of my favourites!

With berms like this, brakes are optional! Fun and flowy for lots of skill levels. Lots of features but nothing that can't be rolled by novices, or jumped with some speed. Two wheeled roller coaster ride that's fun for the whole family! Smiles!

EKG seems to be the primary blue trail for accessing many others. It's has enough up hill downhill sections to keep it interesting but not so steep as to leave you worn out. A nice consistant moderate level of difficulty with many different terrain types and views. Mostly side hill cruising.

There's no trail description so I'll add a little more. Coal Chures is literal! I had no idea until I found myself blastings down chutes of coal. It's a good trail if your starting to get used to steeps. Just point the bike down and hold on! The climb out from the bottom isn't too hard either. It's worth ditching some elevation to ride this!

Wowee is coal fun to ride on! Turn up the speed in this small black shale and your in for some two wheeled surfing!
