Deep Bluff is the Bluff's newest line. An enjoyable climb from the top of Meanstreak is a hoot on the way down with berms, little lips and a rock face. Or from the top, you can now ride over to Dahlie Creek and up to Nervous Shakedown. Deep Bluff allows large all mountain laps by connecting to or from Broken Axe, or for the downhill inclined a different access to get Nervous. This trail also provides access to tonnes of new terrain for the SMBA's continued Bluff Expansion project.

Disclaimer

This newly built trail is prone to damage if ridden when wet. Riding during dry or tacky conditions will pack the dirt and make more durable. So if conditions are good, do your part and ride it lots!
