Back Pains Details
Completed in 2013 by Fafard Recreational Development (FRD), Back Pains is a great addition to the Mackenzie Area trail network. It is a fun and flowy intermediate route built to be descended; riding up it is not recommended. The trail provides the intermediate rider a chance to experience the Nimby climb, without having to descend down the advanced and expert trails located higher up on Mackenzie. Loop Back Pains with the Nimby climb to complete a fun 3.6 km intermediate singletrack ride back to Waco Connector, from where you’ll have a few more intermediate options to continue to descend back down towards the gravel pit.
The Back Pains trailhead is very well marked with a wooden carved sign and located about 2.5 km up the Nimby climb. This relatively smooth singletrack trail will twist and turn around some well-built and well-bermed corners all the way down to Waco Connector. There are a few rollers along the way, allowing the more skilled rider to take some air, while providing nice braking bumps for the less experienced. A few low lying bridges cross several streams along the route, but are built wide enough for most riders to comfortably cross. The more use this trails sees, the better it will get as it settles.
