A fantastic climbing trail that pleasantly winds its way up the east side of Mt. Tzouhalem starting from Nevilane Road. Wonderful pedallable grade with some nice tight corners to challenge you. First bit ends at crossing of Branch E-1 fire road. Continues further up mountain with the next phase of the trail all the way to the end of Finality. Beautifully sculpted with attention to detail and nice bridges higher up the route. Trail is fun to be ridden back down - just watch out for those climbing up the trail as this is a mixed use primary climbing trail. Here you can continue upwards on Lower Finality or drop down to E Road connector.
Thanks to the trail builders for building this rolling fun!

 My favourite climbing route up the mountain now. The trail is well thought out with consideration of the natural terrain and drainage in the area. Beautiful forest and a treat all year in any season.

 It's been a long time since I've ridden in this area and I'm blown away with the quality of the climbing trails I've been on so far. This trail is a gem.
