Macpherson's premier flow-trail makes a great climber, as well as a fast flowing descent trail. Remember, uphill riders have the right-of-way Either way this should be on your must-do at Macpherson list.

Follow the signs for the 'ride-arounds' to avoid riding the technical trail features (TTFs).

       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
