Flipside is a trail that connects the tower area of South Canoe to K/C, Lumpy, Upper Scizo, and Coffee Time with a singletrack climbing option. This trail was designed as a climb trail but could be ridden cautiously downhill. It will also have future connections to the new Mo' Buddah trail when it is complete.

This trails' construction was dedicated to the memory of Greg Fortes. Greg coaxed Jim Maybee to move to Salmon Arm in 1998, and together they helped develop many of the trails in the South Canoe area. Greg was a founding member of Salmon Arm's first cycling club, and helped get the Salty Dog MTB race off the ground with some innovative timing and tracking software. We lost Greg in 2011 to a battle with ongoing mental health issues. His sign-off phrase "...catch you on the flipside" is how the trail found its name.

 Didn't realize this was intended as a climb trail. In the downhill direction this felt like an IMBA style green, a decent cruise down and a good beginner track.
