Flo'Rion is the first gravity-oriented trail opened at East Bluff Bike Park. Flow-tech is the style of this trail, which combines elements of flow trails such as berms and rollers, with technical sections punctuated by the natural rocky terrain of the bluff. This pattern of flow trail interrupted by a handful of rocky roll-downs is common along the length of Flo'Rion. Less experienced riders will be challenged by the intermediate technicality of the roll-downs, while more experienced riders can catch some air on their way through. This trail is also characterized by a high average grade which leaves the rider with plenty of speed. How long can you go without grabbing the brakes?

Originating west of the driveway turnaround at the summit, Flo'Rion passes through a mix of forest types, including a stand of huge cedars close to the summit. Further down the trail you can catch a glimpse of nearby Lake Superior as you huck off a large rock drop, if you dare to take your eyes off the trail Two rocky roll-downs towards the bottom will take you to the future site of the East Bluff Base Village, before ending at the main driveway, opposite from Summer School.

Access Info

Trailhead is located west of the turnaround at the summit of the East Bluff Driveway.

Disclaimer

A large mud put is present at the base of a step-up, use cuation. This feature will not be repaired until 2021. No motorized vehicels on the main East Bluff driveway.

      The rains have exposed some more rock on the roll-downs, be careful that you don't catch a wheel on them.

       Needs more side hits/features in the top half of the the trail. Very bland, but fast. Not sure the climb is worth it if you are taking the road. Hopefully the single track climb will make it more worth it.

       Not much tech, but lots of flow and very fast.
