Natural trail with minimal TTFs. Can be ridden up or down. Main access point for users.

Dempsey Trail a great for beginner riders, offering slightly technical cross country, and is a whole lot of fun done at high speed or at night. There are no serious ramps, drops or stunts on this trail, being one of the few trails suitable for all skill levels. It's also great for anyone looking for a fast cruiser to get back to the car.

Access Info

Accessed off Baden Powell, exiting at Braemar/Dempsey intersection.

      Surprisingly technically challenging for a blue ascent trail.
