Originally part of Chainsaw Masssacre, this short section now has a bypass because it's level of difficulty is considerably above the rest of the trail. The narrow trail and steep sidehill requires advanced skills to ride clean, in either direction.

Access Info

Trailhead: Vehicle parking is available by the Skills Park/Albert Stella Arena located at the bottom of the Pass Powderkeg ski hill. This trail can be reached via the other trails in the riding area.
