Climb is not for the faint of heart. Steep and loose.

An awesome legacy ride. This is a 2 way trail, but only
room for one in the long bridge over the bog. Eyes open and show respect. Don’t taking the bridge when others are already mid-span.

Trail Rupert
Rupert is my favorite trail in Squamish. Fun rock slabs, cool wooden features, plenty to session, and easy to lap! Other trail favorites in Squamish are:

A nice forgiving black trail with flow, tech and go arounds of all features. You’ll want to try the features as they are diverse and fun! Beauty!

This is quite possibly one of the finest trails in existence. Flowy, slabby, fun tech. Simply sublime.

A classic SQUAMISH trail for the past 25 years that wraps up any ride ending on Perth with a big smile on your face. A crowd favorite for the Test of Metal. Good for any rider. Beginners may find the last pitch worth a walk.

One of the best Technical trails ridden with few medium sized rock rolls. Rode as a intermediate black ridder.
