This exit to the McGillivray Falls parking lot separates from the Centennial Trail/ McGillvray Falls Self-guiding Trail. Mountain bikers turn slightly North up a short rock-face climb, then descend down steep open rock-face to single track dirt switchbacks exiting to the parking lot.

There are two rockface options that deliver you to the dirt switchbacks, the A-line exit is a bit steeper and more technical.

The dirt switchback can be mucky and loose so beware when wet :-)
