The whole of Gold Rush is an awesome trail. Period. Looking at the map you can see it as a 3km long singletrack. However, for maximum enjoyment the trail can be divided into a southern half (Gold Rush Descent) and northern half (Gold Rush) with the midpoint near the BC Hydro Powerline (check it out on the map).

Gold Rush Descent is one directional and is a straight shot of downhill adrenaline! Creative riders will take advantage of shifty natural step downs, a couple of gaps, and roost the huge berms! If coming down CBT consider jumping over to Gold Rush at the Powerline and take Gold Rush down towards town.
