Since it opened in 2016, Down Tube has quickly become a favourite. You'll hear most local riders saying that if you can only ride one trail in Terrace, it has to be Down Tube.

To give your legs a good warm up and work out, park at the Johnstone trailhead and ride Flathead until you hit the junction with Down Tube. Let 'er rip and take Hatchet Boy & T2 back to the Flathead junction. Ride Flathead back down the way you came up to get back to your car.

Slick n Slide! Lots of leaves down in sections and tons of slippery roots, but minimal standing water and still as fun as ever. Sections of the trail that have been raked: *Johnstone Trailhead to ~1.25km marker. *T2 to Griff's. *The last 100m (ish) reporter

We took out the giant birch that snapped and was hanging over the trail. Trail is clear and DRY!

Down Tube is all clear! Thanks to the awesome vollunteers for raking the last section from Hatchet Boy down to Kitselas and for bucking out the tree that was blocking the trail above the bridge. reporter
