A great example of an old school DH trail.
Starts out technical then fast and flowy into Berms trail and then finishes up with Godey creek.
Includes some fairly committing steep rock sections at the top.

Access Info

Recommended as a shuttle only. From the old visitors center parking lot drive south on the Coquihalla to Comstock road, turn off onto Iron Mountain road and drive to the top (radio tower)
