Our favourite trail of the day. Steep narrow sections with sections that you can drop or roll. Great for a double black rider or a easy black rider.

Videos make the woodwork seam very narrow, but in reality it is not. I would agree with other comments that it is a blue trail, but amazing nonetheless! Definitely worth checking out!

Optional start was muddy, including a pretty greasy rock roll, and a massive g out bomb hole at the bottom. Plenty carved out chutes from winter trail wear.

Such a fun trail with lots of fun wood features. All of them can be ridden around except the first bridge which you can walk if needed.

My sons and I live in North Van, however we get over to Cumberland Several time per year. The trails here are amazing. There is a nice variety of trails. I know it is a easier trail however Space Nugget is still one of my favourites.

Tree down across the trail on the climb, between that nasty root stepped and the A frame.

Trail Black Hole
Friendly note for those riding Cumberland for the first time and not having done much planning in advance who come up to this trail and figure "hmm, looks good to me -- let's do it." (not that I know anybody like that...)

Primarily a descending trail, though it can be ridden up. Either way, a solid flowy trail Big Grin

Very nice blue trail. There are features you can go around. Still challenging enough. Thank you trail builders for the options.

Love this trail, it flows well and it has a half pipe sort of section where you wave back and forth through a ravine style area. Not difficult just fun!

Fun trail, gets a little tight in the trees if you have too much speed. Makes for a great loop now that it's connected to shortline
