Hand built single track flow trail. Fun and beautiful for all abilities with great views to Valhalla Provincial Park. Taking some abuse as it becomes more popular. You can shuttle it or bike up the logging road for a good 2 to 3 hour round trip spin. Borders private property on the bottom so be courteous.
