• Popular X-C trail always ridden one way from the Twizzler end. Fairly flat elevation profile and fairly easy x-c pedalling except for a 300 metre long rocky section along a boulder-strewn canyon edge which provides a short section of technical challenge. This part can easily be walked, though, and is well worth it to experience the unique landscape.
• If you're shuttling from the top of Twizzler, this is a popular side detour if you don't mind doing some pedalling to extend the ride down.
• To locate the turnoff from upper Twizzler, use the wire fence as a landmark. Going up, look for the wire fence on your left; when it ends, turn left onto Dick’s. Coming down from Dog Creek Rd, as soon as there is a fence on your right, back up slightly for the turnoff. There is a trail sign a short way in on Dick’s Trail.
Rim Job is the natural continuation of Dick's Trail. As you near Rim Job, you'll come out into the open and there will be a wire fence on your right, then look for an opening on the left with a well-used singletrack.

       Just a heads up, this trail is great up to Nerdee (green rd access trail). No trail, and very difficult to locate continuation towards Rim/Job connector.

       Not sure if they've updated the trail this year but there is a very clear continuation of the trail past nerdee that connects directly to Rim Job. The other post that said there isn't a trail is incorrect.
