Macpherson's premier flow-trail also makes a great climber as well... either way it should be on your must-do at MacP list!

New TTF jumps... follow signs for alternate ride-arounds and remember to make some NOISE!

       We bailed on this trail at the powerlines and went back into the main network to descent more interesting trails like Super Happy Fun Trail!

      I guess every area needs their IMBA sustainable flow trail, brings in the newbs and the money which is not a bad thing.

       Such a fun trail! Rail the corners and air the rollers. It's basically a 5km long pumptrack without any techy bits, so stay off the brakes and PUMP ZEE ROLLAZ! Recommend climbing the more techy Tantrum on the return leg.

       Being the first trail I had ridden in Revelstoke, I was pretty happy with this as a warm up and climbed from the Dusty Beaver side which was a really fast and smooth climb. Super fun and fast if you let it rip and the little jump section was a cool feature to have in the middle. Would definitely recommend connecting the Tantrum trail as a loop back to your vehicle for some techy climbing / single-track.

       My favorite trail in Revelstoke! Wonderful cross-country that kicks your butt before the fun down hill part comes. I take dusty beaver to Flow down which creates a challenging, long and fun ride. Best of the best
