Entry - exit at Caddy 44 Please note that the climb from Hwy 44 is climb only for bikes and two way for hikers. After the short climb the trail becomes multi-use, but biking primary on the Blue Highway Route, and hiking primary on the Centennial Trail segment to McGillivray Falls. The climb from Hwy 44 is an average of 4% to 6% grade wide dirt single track,

There is a separate bikes-only descent immediately to the West of the climb. The descent currently features four dirt berms, a tabletop, a rock jump and moderate speeds. Please be careful at the bottom of the descent to slow down before rejoining the access point from Hwy 44.

Part of the Blue Highway route. Park at Caddy Lake camp ground parking lot. Start with dirt single track climb up Centennial Trail - Blue Highway route, exits onto rock face. Wood wall-berm, rock bridges, wood bridges. Good flow and lots of fun Wet in spots after big rain (large slope-drainage area's).

      Trail is great but when it's wet..wow is it slippery! That moss over the rocks makes for some hairy sections especially down hills that are off...

      Rocks ALWAYS slippery when after rain, even though they drain and dry fast, you can't escape the puddles. Then if you're off camber.... Have fun....
