Often considered "cross country", these trails still have plenty of challenge to keep the all mountain riders happy. While peddling and fitness is required throughout, technical skill is also mandatory. Trail surface is mostly natural, with roots and exposed rocks in much of the trail. There are a couple of narrow roll downs or bridges. Riders should use extreme caution if attempting the rock drop at end of clearcut approaching parking area (ride around recommended)

       Ride the bottom half of this trail yesterday. Great for a second lap if you don't feel like climbing all the way back up the access road. Very technical blue with some steep sections up and down. Scenery in here is great though ????

       I always end up riding amazing Squid Line in this park so I decided to try something different. I tried Holiday Sauce and its connection to Emma Peel. The run exceeded my expectations. What a blast. The entire trail is just a more technical version of Squid Line, with some really fun ramps and steep descents. As a previous reviewer said, Emma Peel is also a great option if you don't feel like climbing the full 4 km to the start of Squid Line or Holiday Sauce.

       Used to be a dark blue or light black but recent trail maintenance - as much as it’s very much appreciated - took out the fun spicier stuff. So this is back to a fun blue trail.
