Angry Midget is an awesome trail. It has a very natural feeling to it and is built in a beautiful and mature forest. The trail has a great fall line to it and you will also find all sorts of trail features to play on. This loop is described as a blue loop, but Angry Midget is definitely a black trail. If you are an intermediate level rider you might prefer to ride down Half Nelson (which is the most famous trail in Squamish), and then continue on with the rest of this loop which is all blue.

With the exception of Angry Midget which is a handbuilt gem, the rest of the trails in this route (including the climbing trail) are machine built flow trails that will put a massive smile on your face!

 This is a great ride, but the map doesn't match the "Trails in Route".
The map shows Angry Midget/Pseudo Tsuga.
