Fun technical singletrack with some great rock garden sections, this is one of the most difficult trails located within Ellison Provincial Park.
(Used to be given a black diamond rating due to being the one of the most difficult trails in the park, but this has been corrected to the more accurate blue rating when compared more generally with other trails in the North Okanagan.
