Berms and flow with a few little table tops and fast fun lines top to bottom. There is an optional expert jump/gap line at the midpoint of the descent with a well signed easy ride around on the left. This trail is great for all day laps with the family or as a warm up run for those chasing burlier lines later in the day.

Access Info

Begins at the landing on the right of the 5-mile road, under the sign.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 2 Rating: Obstacles exist. You may or may not be able to ride this solo. Support rider recommended.

Adaptive riders will want to take the well signed ride around (easy) on the left to avoid the jump line midway down the run so as not to hit the sizeable gap jump. Other than that all features are rideable flow track.

      reporter Trail is running well. A few pieces of the tread in the bottom section of the trail are tore up from winter logging and will be repaired very soon.

       I rode this trail on saturday August 12th, 2017. It's a fun trail but be a bit careful in areas as it's not hard packed the whole way down. I found the berms a bit tight for how steep the trail is personally but I was also extremely tired when I did this trail so not in tip top riding shape.

       Road it for the first time on Saturday June 8th. First track of our first trip to Valemount. Super fun, flowey trail set up nicely by recent rain. Great start to a good afternoon of riding.
