A classic fall line downhill trail, nothing fancy here, leave your berms and jumps at home. Just get yourself to the bottom in one piece without gassing. Harder than it sounds, this trail is the venue for the annual AFD Gravity Cup downhill race where local rippers challenge pro and amateur racers from afar.

Access Info

To get here head South on Robb Road (a few kms past the Bike Park) and look for the pullout on the right (stream crossing interpretation area). Drop a vehicle there and continue to McPherson road, hang left and follow it until the rough access road on the second left. Follow the access road to a dead end (well site) and look for the trailhead on the NW corner of the block.
