At one time in the top 5 of trails in Powell River, Burly is classic XC meets DH. This trail is an up and over so expect to climb for 5-10 minutes before descending for 5-10 depending on fitness and skill level.

The trails provides a challenging technical climb into the forest where you can catch your breath at the top of Burly and then enjoy the ride down.

Options are:
1. Ride full Burly up and over to Lower Civil for a wicked rolling downhill experience
2. At the pinnacle of Burly you can take a hard right and drop into Fungi
3. Peel off on the down slope and hit Quaver for some rock slab riding

This trail is unsanctioned.
