This is one of the Maple Ridge Woodlot classics, with sweet bridges, a challenging long log ride, gap jump and several small drops. What more could you and your bike want? 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.
