This trail is super fun, flow fast with easy to mild climbs but with a good prize on every one. Views are really nice and you can combine with some many others like Cinch, Escenic, Pemberton. Has a parking area with awesome bathrooms, showers and even a bike station with all you’ll need for a quick bike fix or even wash it.

Some large sinkholes in the middle of the trail. A lot of rocks in the center of the trail, too.
