Crazy Merry is another trail showcasing the skills and dedication of the volunteers of Castlegar and the West Kootenays.
Crazy Merry will test you mettle with the gap jumps on a few huge features.

Crazy Merry is a super smooth ride for those looking to check it out.
The trail is hand built but looks like it was built by a machine.

"Pre-ride" Inspect trail and features at slow speed
"Re-ride" Lap the trail until you feel comfortable with the flow of the features.
"Freeride" Start small and work your way up to faster speeds and larger features

Crazy Merry was built by Volunteers and with the help from the Castlegar Parks and Trails Society and Recreation Sites and Trails BC making this a sanctioned trail.
