Deep Thought is a technical descending trail that flows through rock gardens and single track. IMBA rates this as a blue square. There are two drops, not huck to flats, they have landings and are meant to hit with some speed. Some say, people who've never been to Canada, that it's a black diamond but because some obstacles have go arounds, IMBA standards say Deep Thought is a blue square. A dark blue...

Access Info

From Penny Lane, the trail is accessible to the finished point for this season. The entrance is about 200ft from the beginning of Penny Lane. There is a very big rock on riders left and the entrance is on the other side of that, also on the riders left.

Look at obstacles before attempting them.

       I agree it could be a blue if the obstacle had ride around but one ride around was blocked by branches and I didn't see the other. Very tech trail but was expecting something similar to Commitment issues as far as difficulty.

       If you want to become a better rider you ride the Shields side of Beacon. This side of the hill has need a "stout" blue trail that facilitates rider progression for a long time. A perfect trail to get riders more comfortable with the distinct terrain that is Shields and ready them for the more challenging trails near by such as the Zipper and Brain Damage.
