      Super fun trail. Definitely a little overgrown at the beginning but gets super nice after that.

       Awesome trail, worth shuttling as it's a long boring climb from the highway. Currently in good shape.

       Proper mtb trail, very pedaly in sections so if you take your DH bike you will be pushing. Loamy in the beginning and middle, leading into a steep sandy chute at the end.

       Trail was fun. Starting to get a bit over grown in spots but was otherwise pretty good. The steep sections at the bottom were pretty difficult to ride when I did the trail as it was incredibly dry and loose.

       Super fun trail. Shuttled it to the top. Long and flowy downhill. Total blast. Last km was hard to ride because it was super dry and steep but fun nonetheless

       Note that the first 300 meters was rebuilt due to logging so it differs a bit from TF. It's also fairly steep and loamy but the trail improves greatly once you get back on the original track.

       Cool trail, some amazing flow through the old growth sections #likeridingoncarpet.. very all mountain and pedally for 50% of the descent. About a dozen trees down, half the trail brushed in last year but the rest is overgrown. The road up was recently graded, soft and loose - recommend a shuttle or e bike. Plenty of potential with a little additional maintenance.
