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)

      Some sketchy rock chutes. Sone sections of the trail are extremely overgrown and poorly marked. Very easy to get lost when connecting to Berms.

      Upper portion 3/5ths) of the trail is in very good shape, dry but not blown out. Lower 2/5ths above Berms needs grass cut, gets tough to tell...

      10-12 trees down so flown is definitely blown. Luckily no trees in blind corners or midway thru a steep so hypothetically still rideable
