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.
