Fine China, also known as the pump track or flow trail, is the first provincially approved trail built by the NMBC. The trail is on a piece of Crown land in the Doumont trail network. Approval and construction of the trail would not have been possible without the help and support of the woodlot manager and many community businesses and individuals. Key business sponsors of the trail include Skylab Custom Vinyl Graphics, Knappett Industries and Nanaimo Sheet Metal.

       The GPS track is off, missing entry trail from road and entire lower half.

       I am sure the people who built this have ridden good trails before so not sure how they managed to mess this up. Its worse than before. Berms that should be supportive are 6 inches tall and berms that dont need it are 3ft and shaped nicely. I think whoever built this needs to re-assess what you are doing. It is very possible to build a green/blue flow trail that is also fun for advanced riders. Not renewing my membership if my money is going to this garbage

       Some wasted their time on fixing this up. It flowed better before. The creek jump should of been rebuilt before touching this one.
