Access Info

To access Bigguns follow the logging road up to the old Backdoor trail. When you get near the top the road will fork with a steep climb up to the right. Follow that climb and the entrance will be found after you enter the cut block. Look for the stone piles on your right to mark the entrance.

       More of a double black trail.

       Fun trail, steep descents with punchy uphill that is short but somewhat challenging. In total is fun, but there is a section that borders on a clear cut that is fall line that has dragged a whole bunch of rocks into the bottom, loose baby heads. I’m not averse to a challenge but Lorax was so much more enjoyable.

       Definitely not a single black, absolutely a double black! Very deceiving after riding a super fun flowy Lorax which is almost green/light blue. The steep sections on Bigguns are barely walkable. Rideable only for the pros!

       Classed as a single black but definitely a double black. Don’t be deceived by the easy fun trails in the area. This a pro line for sure and barely walkable in sections. This review is from an intermediate north shore rider. Lorax rules and Bigguns is my least favourite trail ever!

       Bigguns is one of our favorite trails on the mountain!!!!!!!! We always hit it every time we get to Bear as one of our "go to trails" Nothing on it too extreme or unable to ride. We are far from being pro riders.

       It’s a black trail. Fun with couple challenging lines, but it’s a single black diamond.
