This trail starts off as a Blue technical single track, after the first descent you come out on Green Tunnel, turn left on Green Tunnel and ride until you see the trail sign for Dickson's Descent, drop in to the right. From this point on the trail quickly progresses from Blue technical single track to Black Tech Gnar and quickly gets steep to the point of Double Black in some sections. After some steep loose technical sections the trail opens up onto an old skid road that seems to descent forever. Watch for the signs and make sure to keep right at a few key forks in the road. Last exit point puts you onto the bottom of Lower Dewdney just before the Santa Rosa Road crossing.

Access Info

From Christina Lake travel east on Santa Rosa for 11 km, turn left onto Trout Main. While climbing Trout Main keep to the right until you get to Trout 4105 then turn left. After this turn keep right again until you come to a small clearing. Trailhead is to the left of the clearing.
