The trail is right by the edge of the creek and is very challenging. There are 3 steep hills and accents at the beginning (from Third Line) that require good technique to climb consistently and with speed. There are numerous sections with lots of roots and changing terrain and drops. There are various side trails that lead to features such as berms, jumps and gap jumps. There are a few places where you can descend the bank, cross the creek and enter a whole section of additional trails with berms and jumps on the other side. Collectively, this area is far more challenging than anything offered at Kelso (including Rough Trade, Extreme Trail, Snakes and Ladders, Ugly Up, etc.).

Access Info

There are two primary starting points. One is from Upper Middle, just East of Bronte Rd. The access point is from the south side of Upper Middle near the Hydro Towers. The other is via Third Line just north of North Service Rd W. on the West side of Third Line.
