WORCA's latest addition to the trail network, A Cut Above was built as a climbing connector from Whip Me Snip Me to the top of Beaver Pass. Built to the highest standards, this trail was built by WORCA's dedicated trail vollies over the past few years at trail nights, and completed this fall by paid WORCA contractors thanks to support from Stonebridge Developments.

       Nice work everyone concerned! I do have a question....why is this primarily an uphill/climbing trail? I would have assumed it was more of a descent trail. Why would a trail climb up to a more difficult trail (Beaver Pass) that is primarily heading downhill? It doesn't seem logical to climb up A Cut Above, only to ride the last half of Beaver Pass. Or am I missing something? Thanks again for building new trails!

       it's a return route back into Stonebridge if you come down Wizard, or via Rebob/27 Switchbacks if one was headed south, it's just a quicker route back up to get back to the goods. It joins with Beaver Pass just below the top and it's an easy pedal to Stonebridge Drive where you can hit Danimal south or back into 99'er, or back up to Flank.

       A fun narrow single track climb with a good pitch and a few breaks in the right spots where it mellows out for a bit. Great views too make this an enjoyable way to get up to the Flank from the North.

       There's a few exposed sections on the down hill side. Don't fall off. Rode it down for the first time today, Feels like it would be a pretty tough slog going up.

       Its definitely not a blue run! Its very rocky and has steep bits in it. At the start of the trail its classified as a black trail! We enjoyes taking our bike for a walk on bits. Good views though!

       Works great as a decent trail if don't fancy riding the lower janky chunder of Beaver Pass. However watch for climber's priority.
