       Super dynamic trail, lots of nice slabs up top. A bit of climbing midway through. Watch out for kangaroos

       This trail is definitely one of the top 5 trails off all time for me. If your natural riding style is to double up everything you see, this will have you giggling. It goes soooo good i cant believe its not butter

       Ride it. Don't think about it. Just ride it. One of the best trails in BC without a doubt.

       Amazing trail. Can't recommend it enough. Big rock slabs, complex features at top that get gradually easier as you descend. Techy. Some climbing mixed in but given the awesome payoff, there were no complaints from us. Some skinnies too. One of my favourite trails of all time.
