This trail is jammed packed with technical features and is only suitable for experienced and competent riders. The technical features are generally on bedrock so traction is good for staying in control, but ride with caution - particularly on your first time around. This trail links unique and incredible bedrock terrain. Highlight view points include: Egg Rock, Jug-Haul / Grand Canyon, Cave Hill, and Behemoth.

Consider starting at the top/south end of Evergreen, then head up G-Spot. Look for the marked blue-rocks very near the top of G-Spot - follow those all the way until you finally reach the Electrical ROW which you then take back to Evergreen. The first time rider will need to really keep an eye open for indications of where the trail leads. Allow 2 hours with brief stops.

The trail runs through both private property and Skaha Bluffs Provincial Park. The trail is not sanctioned, but all entities are aware of the mountain biking in this area and have not closed the trail(s). Let's keep it that way by staying on trail, not building man-made features, and being respectful to wildlife and those on foot. ***As this trail goes through the park, dogs are not allowed.

Access Info

Follow the blue rocks off the (near) summit of G-Spot.
