Somewhat flowy hand-made trail mostly through large treed interior forest. Some steeper bits, some avoidable stunts. For the uphill biker, ride up the forestry road that starts next to Roseberry Provincial Park.

Access Info

Accessed via West Wilson Creek forest service road which starts next to Roseberry Provincial Park where the trail finishes. Turn left shortly after a 160 degree right turn with good views of the lake. Continue across the cut blocks past the exit of Butter (upper). Start is about 100m beyond the radio tower. There is a single-tracy bypass on the right that avoids the section of road immediately around the radio tower. It comes back onto the road just past (north of) the entrance to lower Butter. Can shuttle to start or near in most vehicles except lowest ground clearance. Can be combined with Upper Butter (also known locally as "Brown Pow".)

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
