This is a rooty and rocky, technical trail with lots of challenges. Plenty of pedaling up against stones, boulders and large swaths of roots.

Agreed with Cdonze... How did this get a double black? Even in the description it states that intermediate riders will love it. There was nothing high at all... Maybe 60 cm max.

Sure it's a done trail and a lot of work went into it, but label it a blue please.

Perfect warm up before hitting J-Bar. Climb up from the bottom, hit Rude Awakening, then climb back to the top and do J-Bar to the bottom and you will have a hell of a time. I rode this in the wet and it was still a lot of fun, but man, I'm sure it's a brake burner in the dry.

TOO MUCH FUN! For the love of god just keep building these types of trails. 5 or 6 of these off the top of the mountain and you'll be in the same class as Sentiers du Moulin and Whistler.

Wish the upper section of this trail was directional, then the three ladies who were riding up the Burnham DOWN section might not have aggressively pushed their way past us while giving us dirty looks and ruining the flow.

If you like steep trails you'll love this. I don't. I prefer to not constantly be on my brakes.
