Built by the expert craftsman and generally skilled dude, Chris Masters, this 6 year project was completed in 2011 and opened up a whole new style of building in the region. Chris was instrumental in building the new Snakes and Ladders trail in 2012, and Backdoor provides some insight into why it turned out so well.

Starting about 450m from the start of Snakes and Ladders you'll turn left onto the line. It starts with a long all mountain section that climbs to a high point just before the Ravin crossing. You can either ditch here and turn right on Ravin and hook up with the south part of the network, or get your serious all mountain on and enjoy this freeride journey. With progressive jumps and natural transitions this flowy trail will leave you grinning ear to ear. After you cross Booga Wooga (the last bail out) you descend down a steep section to finish it off.

This trail is best shuttled as you are far down the River Valley when you're done. To shuttle, drive past the dump off Mackenzie avenue and just after the transfer station you'll see a gravel road continuing downhill. After crossing a sketchy bridge the road continues straight and turns right to the parking lot at bottom of the hill, where the trail ends.
