Fantastic trail for the more advanced rider with a little bit of everything: Great viewpoints, numerous rock rolls (including a series of 5 in a row), a few ladders and three short climbs. If it’s too challenging – and the top half is slightly easier than the bottom – you can peel off on AM/PM half way through for a quick downhill. The more difficult features all have easy ride arounds except for the last ladder.

There’s a lot of flow here, although the final climb just after the AM/PM intersection breaks this up a bit as it’s a steep one. It’s a trail to challenge yourself to ride as cleanly as possible and will keep you coming back to it again and again. Thank you Duncan for designing such a great trail!

Access Info

Access this by climbing the Lower Microwave Tower Access Road from the bottom of Cheakamus, or through a short climb up from the end of Highline if you're coming from the High trails. Alternatively, you can get here by riding down ~1km from Tunnel Vision

 This is an amazing trail, a must ride for the confident shredders out there. It is challenging for intermediate level riders, first timers can probably expect to do a little pushing in the steep climb sections as momentum is key but dont let that put you off. The downhill flow is epic! I will ride this trail again and again.
