Tree down near the top by the kvr by Scarlett. Have to walk through the bush a bit to get around it, trail blocked.

Sweet trail that transitions from forest to desert. Few nice natural rock drops although landing is a bit flat on a few of them. Get some practice in and jump off your fridge at home.

One of the best trails in the Okanagan. Link it to connector for fun, big drops for variety or rocky screech for more tech.

This is an easy relatively flat ride. For some reason the elevation gains/ losses are different than shown

1st time advice - Entering this trail from KVR stay left to keep on track, at around elev 1175 at a drainage there is a somewhat established but loose downhill trail that is quite a bit steeper and joins up with the Angel Springs Trail. This way is a bit more challenging and more than I wanted to tackle (had a good wipeout) and is easy to veer off on if not paying attention.

I'd rate this as blue. Easy smooth surface, but it's got some steep grades that definitely aren't suitable for beginners

Trail Earring
The top of the trail from Race Classic to Hillbilly is not a blue trail. There are some very technical and difficult descents, including some near vertical drops. This is mixed with some flat pedal sections over loose rock that are highly unpleasant.

Below the Hillbilly junction, the trail becomes fast and flowy and is a great intermediate ride.

Upper Earring is more Black than Blue. Not for Novices, unless they like walking. True Blue almost Green from Middle Bench down.

Trail is in rough shape, definitely could use care. There is a lot of potholes and sandy gravel. You should have a mountain bike to ride. Considering this is part of the Trans Canada Trail which is very well cared for - TCT riders call it the travesty of the trans Canada trail.

I should add, maybe parts of it are green and the elevation maybe doesn’t warrant it being a blue, but the rocky sections do... if a novice rider has to walk, its not green in my opinion.

Great piece of trail. Has flow if you're fast, and oh no, maybe you have to put a pedal stroke or two in. Highly recommended.

The top section of this trail was really nice before the “hillbilly-pink highway connector”, the bushes were beaten back nicely and had some decent flow, but below that connection the bushes are quite overgrown and the trail is rather rocky.
