Chainsaw is a fun downhill style trail that starts off with a rock roll, berm jumps, and a set of large tabletop jumps (around 20 feet). It is recommended to do a slow run through the line to check out all the features before trying them. After the jump section there is a traverse with some rollers, rock gardens, and some smaller jumps. After the traverse it goes into the final section of trail that is quite steep, loose, and technical. There is an option to turn left before the steep sections if you want to avoid it. Overall, an awesome trail that would be best on a trail bike to downhill bike. One of the coolest trails on the island and it would best be enjoyed by an advanced rider. There is really nothing else like it in Victoria. Pay a visit to the Hub Bike Shop at Bear Mountain for directions and any other needs you might have,

Not rideable right now, covered in 6' of snow. Lots of brush hanging over the trail from the weight of the snow.
