Finished in 2018 and built by Terraflow Trail Systems, Gambler is an Intermediate (Blue) Flow Trail that runs 3.5 miles from the top of the Swift Current Chair to the base area. The trail features more berms than you can count and some small table top style jumps.

Gambler also serves as a catch trail for Vine, Lobo, Elbow, Keyhole and Buffalo Jump to direct riders back to the base area, keeping riders off of the Middle Road which is now closed to bike traffic. Advanced riders on this trail are advised to use caution and give beginner to intermediate riders the right of way.

       It’s a stretch from a blue tail lol. If your comfortable with steep and big burms, go for it. Take a test run first at 50% lol.
