The longest day of the year is a good enough excuse to go for the longest ride! This route will take you up into the alpine and then flow down into the valley where cold beer and hot BBQ awaits! Enjoy the sun!

Thank you DreamWizards for the work on the first section, the new switchbacks/grade changes make it much more enjoyable!! Running well.

Icy, wet, muddy in sections with some larger puddles of standing water forming due to drainage issues. The usual issue of full DH wankspangles (who probably shuttled up) riding downhill to link 19th Hole to Half Nelson failing to yield to the climbing rider - get some manners and pull over in future. Some significant erosion in corners, especially on the higher upper section, making the switchbacks even more tricky than usual. Some of these switchbacks were definitely not built with a modern XL bike with 1250mm plus wheel base in mind. There is a fine line between challenging and getting the dimensions wrong and some of these switchbacks definitely fall in the later category (as evidenced by dozens of well built and very challenging switchbacks else where in Squamish that do allow a fair chance for a long wheel base). Overall a great trail and very well maintained given the challenges of times and distance (walking in with tools from the FSR and link trails).
