So much can be said about the trails on Blackcomb, but instead of trying to describe what you have to look forward to, we will just let you go find out for yourself.

Expect this ride to take anywhere from 2.5 to 4 hours. The climb up Blackcomb is a grunt in all weather conditions but is greatly intensified in the heat of the summer.

      I would give this trail a few more days to dry out, the roots are slick and the rocks were slippery! I was out of town when the rain storm happened a few days ago and had no idea how wet the trail would be.
