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.

       Confusing as hell and probably needs to be upgraded to a Blue. There were multiple trails that ended up being detours to nowhere. Had to dismount several times as the inclines and declines were very significant given the amount of exposed routes. Would love to get another riders thoughts on this one.

       There are no detours to "nowhere" as there are no dead ends. Like any new ride, you have to ride it a few times to figure out the circuit. Once you do, it's a great ride. BTW, it's tagged as a black now.

       Yes, there are many; just search on the side trails

       It's confusing the first few times but it can be fun as hell exploring the side trails. Wear long pants because there are lots of ticks and a bit of poison ivy.also there are some steep bits so be prepared to hike your bike for a bit. The descents are great as well and there is a valley downhill section I session every time

       Definitely should be upgraded to blue. Starting from south/east side it is not too bad for a bit but it soon becomes rather tough. As you keep riding up, the track becomes more and more narrow, at times coming very close to the edge. Eventually you're riding with almost no trail and trees all over, and bumpy roots all the time. I was with my wife so little less than halfway through we had to turn back as it was no longer pleasant ride but became a workout with frequent dismounts off of the bikes. Don't get me wrong - you can probably ride it all the way but the trail should be marked as blue - marking it green is way misleading.

       Coming in from Upper Muddle Road, I got stuck pretty early. I found some of the jumps but ended up crossing the creek and came to an insanely steep uphill which would be a challenge to even walk up. Is that the right way to go?

       Best way to access is right after you turn left onto Upper Middle from Bronte you go down the path that is before the electrical tower

       Does anyone know if you are allowed to go through the trail or not because I saw a no enter sign because of ticks on the third line entrance.
