Old school trail with new school flair. Steep, some narrow/technical trail features with no ride around options.
The difficulty of this trail goes up when there is moisture on the trail.

Because of how steep it is, it's not suitable for riding in the rain.

This trail is unsanctioned.


Please avoid riding in wet weather to prevent erosion and trail damage. TTFs and steeps have no ride-arounds.

      Really fun trail with steep corners, roots and drops. Nothing massive but rather technical. Thanks to the builders for all the work! Trail is prime now!

      We are doing a lot of work work on both the upper and lower sections of this trail. Once the work is complete and had a chance to settle and firm up we will remove the signage and tape. We need a period of dry weather as well to help this process. Please everyone respect the closure for now. A reminder this is a dry weather trail due to sustainability issues. A bit of patience now will pay off for everyone.

      Is this trail named after the 1970s Burt Reynolds movie? If so, respect to those creative trail builders.

      My humble opinion:
      Dry - Single Black
      Wet - Double Black

      I wouldn't say it's a double black but possibly a proper black. Six/Slayer would be considered an easy black. Fun trails regardless look before you leap Smile

      I rode this trail today to see what the fuss was about with the rating. In terms of Burke’s trail network and varying difficulties this trail is rare very adequately. Definitely a double black.

      Upon review of my previous comment and speaking with a number or riders familiar with this trail along with user voted difficulty ratings on this site the builders have repeatedly attempted to change this trail rating to a double black diamond. Looking at imba standards along with the imba trail rating guide this trail should be a double black. We feel it in the best interest of riders to have this rating changed as too many think this will be the same difficulty as other trails rated single black in the area (BBT, etc). This can result in a safety issue for those unprepared for what this trail really is like. For some reason TORCA refuses to cooperate with the builders/maintainers of this trail in changing the rating. With them as moderators on this board we are unable to give the rating this trail really should have. Please Torca rate this as a double black diamond trail

      No doubt that it is a challenging trail. Are there features on it that brings it up to Double Black diamond status (according to Whistler Trail Standards)?
      • Elevated bridges: more than 3 m (10’) high above surface?
      ➞ Minimum width of flat decking less than one-quarter the height above surface?
      • Teeter-totter with a pivot height more than 1.8 m (6’) above surface?
      • Mandatory air more than 1.0 m (3.3’) vertical?
      • Rock or ramp descents exceeding 120%
      • Gap jumps?

      In accordance with the IMBA trail standards and the guide they supply for rating trails there are a number of reasons to rate this trail as a double black diamond. There are two trails on this mountain that are rated double black. (Vics and Bullet Dodger) Ask yourself if either of these have the features you are listing. The answer is no. The criteria you list is far from a fully inclusive way to rate a trail. Please review the IMBA standards and guide and change this trail to a double black. I find it frustrating that Torca is so determined to stay uncooperative and confrontational with the builders/maintainers who are putting in countless hours of volunteer work on this mountain.

      The trail isn't in Whistler, so I'm not sure why you're using their standards as a baseline. That said, does anyone build sky ladders anymore... Either way, why the issue with deferring to the builders whishes or public input? Why not err on the side of caution? I would think as a rep of a trail org antagonizing builders is a step in the wrong direction. Better to have a broad spectrum of double black anyway imo. Less people trying to ride above their limits, and less wear on the type of trails that can't handle it as well. Seems like a win win.

      fwiw, the Whistler Trail Standards are used as the benchmark standard by land managers and clubs across the Province and beyond as they were some of the first of their kind.

      I asked the Whistler Trail Standards question not to be confrontational but to clarify. Whistler Trail standards are typically used by land managers in BC. If you want to use IMBA Trail Standards, then yes, this trail would probably qualify as Double Black. Therefore, it has been changed. As well, maybe other trails need to be re-evaluated.

      Thanks for changing the rating. We have been attempting to have this changed for a long time and it's good to see it finally happen. As stated in the IMBA guide it is important to evaluate difficulty relative to local trails. In accordance with the whistler standards you referred to most trails on Burke that are currently listed as single black diamonds really should be rated as blue. (BBT, Slayer, Overtime, etc, etc) These seem to be all rated using IMBA standards that bring them up to black diamond status. This is where it is important to stay consistent in how trails are rated relative to each other. There needs to be a differentiation between those trails and more difficult ones so riders have an idea of what to expect. At the end of the day we want all riders to have a good time and not unexpectedly get in over their skill level.

      Fair enough on the Whislter standards, but perhaps with a growing ridership (less hardcore fanatics, more weekend warriors... nevermind the e-bike set about to run amok), and evolving trail preferences/building styles, they need to be revisited? The average rider seems to be less experienced at the technical stunts kinda stuff imo and it's not uncommon to see decent sized gap jumps on blue trails these days.To be honest, when i see sea to sky trail ratings talked about in forums etc, it's always in reference to how they are harder than in other areas. Maybe not ideal for a tourist destination, although i suppose it promotes the notion that BC is "real" mountain biking. With so many variables, it's a difficult issue anyway you slice it, but as tortise suggests, sticking to the local flavour is probably the easiest solution (not that i think imba standards need to be followed either) and end of day a builder should have their say. While it's probably ann impossile task at this point, I also think an expanded rating system should be considered. Why not double greens and blues as well? I mean we have the technology for other colours and shapes as well...

      I think this trail may be more of a double black than single. Doing another trail that is black diamond called Slayer is much more manageable than this one for someone of my level. Slayer is more than doable whereas this trail I could barely ride. Before Warren there are a lot of features and some pretty sketchy but cool downhill. Rad trail but I think it might be listed wrong.

      I understand where you are coming from with your suggestion for the trail rating. If you look up what qualifies as a black diamond trail however you will see this trail falls under that rating. The trail ratings can be a bit misleading as black diamond covers a wide range. Some trails that fall under this rating one may consider more blue trails (slayer,bbt, etc) whereas others such as this are more what many might consider a double black. The trail rating system is far from perfect in trying to predict what a trail is really like to ride.

      This has enough steep technical moves that it would probably be a (easier) Double Black in most bike parks or many other areas. Riding it blind definitely felt a little sketchy in spots.
