This trail was built as a tribute to Dave "Sweaty" Swetland a pioneer of freeride mountain biking who grew up on his family's land nearby.

Sweaty inspired the first generation of Christina Lake locals to pursue the more fringe aspects of mountain biking. These riders were then instrumental in the development of Wheelchair Access and Boris. You can see Sweaty's antics in the first three Kranked films and also the recently released "Moment" documentary.

Please be considerate of the locals when using Fife Rd. to shuttle this trail.

Watch for active logging trucks.

Trail is in great shape. Fall leaves have added a small degree of difficulty. Get out and ride.
