This is mainly a descending trail to get to Brackendale from Jacks. Although you can use it to climb back up to Jacks after descending Crouching Squirrel, it is recommended to go down to Tantalus Road and climb but up Dowad Drive.

       good reminder today that brackentrail is sometimes used as a climbing trail. good thing its early and the foliage cover isn't grown in so you can see down the trail a fair ways, otherwise it would have been an ugly head on with an e-bike crew coming up it today.
