Berma-Grin is a flow trail that has been built to challenge the more advanced rider yet still be enjoyed by all. Fifty six features pepper the trail top to bottom and more advanced riders will enjoy the challenge of turning the ample rollers into fun doubles. Beautifully crafted berms wind down the trail, helping carry speed through all of the buff sections. As the trail nears the midpoint there are options of A and B lines so that riders of all abilities can
find their flow. There is nothing similar in the area. Most riders will head back up for multiple laps, unable to wipe the smiles from their faces.

Access Info

Trailhead: Vehicle parking is available by the Skills Park/Albert Stella Arena located at the bottom of the Pass Powderkeg ski hill. The quickest access to the trailhead is via the ski hill gravel road (1.3 km) and a further 200 m on the Dale Strandquist double-track trail. For more interesting routes, use the singletrack cross-country trails in the Pass Powderkeg Riding Area.

If you want to do quick repeats of Berma-Grin, return to the trailhead via the ski hill road/double-track trail.
