Galactic definitely rides like a moto trail. A long, steep climb with some loose sections, and a couple technical climbs as well. What the trail lacks in overall flow, it almost makes up for with some interesting scenery, and a good viewpoint that looks down onto the Alice lake zone. The lower portion of the trail opens up with some fun and fast flow, but watch for obstructions.

Access Info

Pedal up Access 6 at the 3rd switchback of Garibaldi Park Road. Continue pedalling past the entrance to Grin and Holler. You will come to an obvious Y intersection. The signs for Galactic are clearly marked. Stay right at the fork and continue to climb access 6. When the trail begins to descend, you're on Galactic.

      Overall good condition. The river that the last report was talking about (I think) was passable but ridding over water for 3-4 meters. One hole...
