A fantastic climbing trail that pleasantly winds its way up the east side of Mt. Tzouhalem starting from the bottom of the ill-conceived golf course. 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 mtn with Annex1 all the way to the end of Finality. Even better when you turn around and ride LGT back down - just watch out for those climbing up the trail.
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.
