This is one of the Maple Ridge Woodlot classics, newly re-imagined for sustainability by builder's Ryan and Eugene.

***Trail work in progress, please watch for changes and give it a rest in heavy rain***

With plenty of challenges, this ride hooks up with great fall line riding from Blood Donor, and flows nicely into Hoots.

       Pretty easy trail for a black diamond. Good flow, not much tech. Drops are not too (look first) big and are optional.

       If I went and scrubbed all old wood features to get all the algae off and replaced boards to make them rideable would people be against that? I’ve never really done trail maintenance but thought this might be helpful
