Fun trail with 2 sections. The upper section is a nice downhill with some berms, drops, and jumps. the lower section is slightly downhill with a few more jumps and berms. You can ride the lower section a few times by taking a connecting trail that takes you back where the upper and lower parts connect.

The city parks/rangers call the trail "Suycott Valley Alternate Trail," as indicated by the trail head sign. But the name "E-Ticket" is better known by the mountain bike community and matches Strava.

Access Info

Look for the sign "Suycott Alternate Trail”.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 2 Rating: Obstacles exist. You may or may not be able to ride this solo. Support rider recommended.

Dilemma: Steep, loose, ledgy climb

      The climb to get here and to get out makes this trail barely worth it. Unfortunate, because it is fun.

      Watch out for hikers on the weekends (and possibly in the week) that are unaware of mountain bikers on the trails. This is a fairly popular trail for hikers to use in the opposite/north traveling direction, which can become dicey on blind corners...

      Perfect name for this fun downhill! My first time riding it (beginner/intermediate) and I smiled the whole way. There's even a wide, flat rock garden that could serve as a great practice session area.

      This was one of my first experience with singletrack. All the jumps feel really good and there's some nice flow in some sections. Definitely makes me want to do this section over and over

      Upper section is signed as Syncott Valley Alternate.. one of the more manicured trails in the area.. decent flow, bermed corners. Good downtrack fun.. mostly hard pack even bone dry.
