This is a really fun trail. There are some different options on the slabs and you can go around if you want to skip one. Overall really nice trail

We rode this yesterday and it’s not been maintained. Lots of trees down blocking the trail and some sections difficult to get over the downed trees to get back to the trail. Don’t recommend based on condition.

Good multi-use single track. Watch for dirt bikes coming up if you are riding down.

Map is a little inaccurate when crossing the access road, turn left and ride about a minute and the trail continues on the right.

Great trail! The drive along West Kokanee Face FSR is rough, probably easier to take the bikes off and ride it, not much uphill anyway.

Just rode this trail on September 25th 2014. The "ATV' track to the top is driveable. We shuttled in a larger F250 quad cab long box truck which was tight going but anything 4x4 that is smaller should be ok. The trail is clear top to bottom and well worth the effort to get there!

I rode this trail last year (2011) in July, there was still snow at the top so it was very hard to find the trail. In my opinion its not worth the effort it takes getting to it. The trails is obviously not ridden much, there were many trees down across the trail and almost all the wood features were broken.
