A much easier alternative than Recycle to finish your ride on, and also the better of the two to ride on a wet day.

       This trail is actually called "the last trail" long ago locals named it and some hooligans came and put up a sign "GARBAGE" because the trail was rough. This trail is actually my favorite at Burke with some kick ass jumps through out, they have been recently fixed up.

       Well, i ride at burke almost every week and id have to say garbage is my favourite trail at burke, once you know how to hit the drops and the jumps it will become really fun and flowy to you.

       After the initial tough drop, this trail is fun with lots of cool jumps and drops. Its really flowy as well.

       this is fun trail, though a lot the upper section has been diverted to recycle. garbage is a good alternative for a rainy day though

       Be careful on the jump after the log drop. It’s fallen apart due to erosion

       Fun trail. Nice challenge for a new rider such as myself. I think intermediate riders would also enjoy as there are a few jumps and some wood features.
