Danimal Middle is an old trail that has seen a lot of work in recent years. It is one of the arteries in the Westside, connecting trails such as Three Birds and 99'er. It is also a much more pleasant ride than Lower Sproatt. A challenging climb in both directions, Danimal Middle is a fun trail but not worth riding on its own. Combine with trails from the Flank via Industrial Waste, or follow up with Danimal North.

Access Info

The trail is access by riding up Stonebridge Drive. Right before a creek crossing, the trail winds away on your left. Alternatively, look for the well marked junction with Lower Sproatt.

       This tail is actually a black diamond trail, should be fixed on the app.

       In the past before it was less maintained and more rough and raw and could've slotted more into black diamond territory, but it is in fact an intermediate trail and fits that definition as per the Whistler trail standards.

       Cool, good to know. Took my girlfriend over there today and she was a little worried by the black diamond on the trail post (Near ACDC) Defiantly rides like a blue.
