This downhill trail, named in honour of Sprockids founder Doug Detwiller, is being incrementally built by the Capilano University students in the spring of every year since 2012 under the guidance of instructors Jay Hoots and Daniel Scott. It currently enters off of lower Sidewinder beside Upper Flume and is a funtastic mixture of flow and tech mountain bike features. Countless rollers, berms, log rides, and ladder bridges are mixed in between a few larger step-down drops and cannons. Caution is advised when exiting the trail onto Lower Flume as this can be a high traffic area.
