Tree down across the trail about 100m from the start, in a straight section so easy to see

Beautiful views for very little work. Great uphill trail that's gradual for pedalling with a high reward view. Would even be a nice running or hiking trail. Definitely suggest the trail, even if you just rode it in and out.

Surfy for sure. Large trees down near the first 3rd - looks like it’s been there a while.

Out of towner here. Curious to know why they would build a blue CLIMBING trail that ends with a double black diamond ride out? Aware there are also 2 other optional rides outs, but both are single blacks. Took a blue lvl rider up only to find out there was no other way out for him except riding this back down (not recommended!!!)

Loved the trail today! The trail is very fast and full of little jumps and burms. The trail is great beacuse you can also go slow and avoid most obstacles

Spent 4 hours trimming the Bush on Daze this week. You should enjoy a relatively clear climb now. Was very bushy up around No Ledt Turn.

Took a brush trimmer and cleared Jabba. It is good to go. Good 6 hours of work but it was getting dangerously overgrown up top.

I'm from Edmonton and I was lucky enough to come across such a cool trail. So many jumps and drops! I liked the car door jump - nice touch! Good job builders/maintainers!

I don"t Know if I would call this a blackdiamond trail. Green maybe? It is a long climb but hardly technical.
