Trail Flat Pete
No flow, flat corners to the point of being tiresome. Built in the low average speed "multi-use conflict avoidance style" of trail building that seems to be common in Edmonton. Constant frustration due to scrubbing of any speed you build up.

I was coming up caddytrack (east to west), the final leg right by the bridge, pepper and I both had bear bells on, this guy jumped in and killed my push. I didn't say anything but when he started down he yelled "you don't have bells, next time yell when you're coming up"
I Just yelled I have two! In a stunned voice. He should ring when he is dropping in and then I'd yell. When you're that burned, you're not going to start yell when you don't see someone. First person that has ever been a jerk while I've been riding.

New log feature on the trail. This trail is great for younger kids and new riders, it's fast and flows. The logs now require younger kids or inexperienced riders to get off their bikes to go over. Hope it doesn't become Logarhytmic #2.

Loved this trail the first time I hit it. Has a couple steeper sections in the first half that might intimidate those with less experience (bit steeper than “GO Trail” by Terwillager for reference) but the last half is very fun, great to rip through that little ravine on a hot day! Even if you’re concerned about the steeper sections just try it, walk them if you have to as you’ll love the rest!

I think this is a pretty cool, underrated trail. Do Raven first in to this and it’s a great ride. Lots of techy climbs and descents akin to rock gardens... without the rocks. Very unique arid terrain you won’t see much of in Edmonton. Definitely susceptible to rain though. Essentially becomes mud flats until it dries out.

This trail does not belong in 25% of either most fun, most technical or most scenic trails. And yet if you haven’t ridden it you have missed out on a truly Edmontonesque experience of finding some fun in completely flat terrain, getting disoriented, curiously puzzled and bored at the same time. Also if you ride because of its #1 status - congrats, you have been trolled ????

This is a fantastic beginner trail for kids and beginners looking to get more comfortable in the trees. It will also be great for newbies to winter riding. It should get a high rating for it’s audience. Don’t expect any excitement if you are more experienced, though it is a nice little connecter between Flat Pete and Logarhythmic.

I really like this trail. I definitely enjoy it more riding it in the opposite direction that trailforks suggests. I find it much more flows and fun that way. It feels like there is a lot more downhill to enjoy even though the climb at the beginning is tougher. Added bonus is that you aren’t riding uphill on the skinny bridge when you ride it clockwise.

Great conditions now that all the leaves are off the trees. Little bit of rain tonight will make it slippery.

I never get tired of this amazing trail, with its twists turns and roots, keeps you on your game. Rides great in the winter too!
Kudos to the builder!

This trail wore me out and it felt like my bike was going to fall apart... but I still hit it again one the way back! Awesome trail!

Great trail! It puts you in a trance as it weaves back and forth! It feels like it is never going to end, and that's what made it fun. Lots of little roots and tiny berms that make this trail neat for a flat singletrack. Great for all levels of bikers, and well cleared! Pleasantly surprised when I rode this trail for the first time today.

To the person digging on this trail: If you are going to build a jump don't get the dirt from the trail, that's not cool. Also trail work is best done when the dirt is not so dry.

I just discovered this trail this morning and really enjoyed it. It will definitely become a favourite on the SW side of the city. Thanks to the builders and I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements. Thanks to the builders.

When doing this in reverse does anyone else have to walk up the steep part right before the clearing or do I need to step my game up haha.

I will have to try again when its dry. I find I don't have an issue with my legs, I'm leaning forward but still the bike wants to tip backwards a bit. Probably because i'm not carrying enough speed once it gets really steep. I also don't have a major granny gear on a 1X10 but i figured any less gear ratio on this steep climb might have a traction problem anyway. Wish me luck.

This is a really fun short section of trail. Rooty technical bit coming to a railroad tie ramp leading up to the pictured bridge, followed right away with another bridge/ramp dropdown, and then a nice flowing downhill to finish it off.

The off-camber stuff is still a little bit loose and narrow, but I think with a few more riders hitting it, it will sort itself out quickly. Nice trail, the pump track section flows well and is a lot of fun.
