That rock slab is awesome! Worth the climb in 30 degree weather!

You have to turn left on the road & cross the texas gate to find the single track trail to finish bottom section on

Would rate this closer to black than blue. Too many rocks and roots for my liking. Also have found there is a lack of trail markings/signs in general on the York Lake trail system compared to Fernie trails.

Awesome. Not sure why its Red. There are a few sections that require thought and maybe a quick walk down. All rideable for advanced riders.
Do it. Views are great at the top.

I'm happy it's a Black since I probably wouldn't have ridden it if it were Red.
