Steep and a bit loose in some sections. Fun trail would recover if you want a challenge.

It's as much of a grind as people say. With that said, you do gain a lot of elevation for your time spent and there aren't any roots or rocks to contend with so strong legs is all it takes to succeed. It's a long mostly steep double track with gravel.

Mostly just a steep double track road, this is not a fun climb. It serves a valuable purpose for the area, but be warned if you are looking for a shortcut up the mountain. The first 2/3 of this trail is fairly brutal, then it mellows out a bit from the turn off to ‘don’t look back’ until the end of the trail.

Rode this yesterday. Worca doing an amazing job of reworking this trail- filling holes and increasing flow.

Steep rooty climb trail that just got a bit easier thanks to some recent work. Thanks for making it just a little less gruelling!

Me and my buddy rode this trail last weekend.
We are the capable technical riders mentioned in the description. ????
We walked about 4 features and rode the rest.
Not the easiest features to walk/extreme hike abike down but totally worth it.
It is a beautiful trail

Thank you for all the recent work to the bridges! I rode it on May 31 and appreciated all of the updates, and happy that it kept the previous feel to it.

Rode for the first time since just after opening. Has 0 flow and lots of jank awkward moves. Great trail if you like that kinda stuff. Should be rated harder than both High Society and even Cheap Thrills, especially considering the lack of ridearounds.

Too many uphills and skinnys for this to be 5 stars, but the down sections are awesome.

Nice trail. The tech sections are good enough, unfortunately expect traverse and pedally sections. Worth visiting once a year.

Definitely one of my favs on the westside - great flow, hardly any climbing and leaning towards the easier side of double black

This trail seems to have been mostly destroyed by a new road for hydro crews. The trail crosses the road many times but is almost unrecognizable anymore and we had a very difficult time locating the trail until the last 1/2 mike where we turned off on A La Mode

if you'll notice the description it's listed as a secondary access road due to the reactivation.

The current situation on lower sproat, in technical terms, is a$$-raped. Needs to be regraded, lots of areas of solid mud, occasional snow.

This one is my favorite of the main trails coming off the Flank south of Darwin’s. It’s got lots of flow and some steep rock rolls. I wouldn’t say it’s any more difficult than the others though

Fun trail, but a couple of spots are a bit janky and are serious flow killers. Minus those areas this trail rips.

GPS seems to be a little out on this at the northern end - should be above Rockwork Orange and Wizard Burial Ground.

We should either get a new GPS track. Or you could edit the track and on sat view you can see the trail so just move the track.
