Gold is re-opened.

A re-imagination built in 2020-2021 that pays homage to the original trail (circa 2000). Expect ladder bridges, skinnies, drops, gaps, and a steep rock roll. Most of these options are rated double black diamond and there is an alternate line for all. If it's your first time down the trail, we recommend check the options out before sending it.

      Riding beautifully. Even with all the rain the dirt work is well packed. Still I would stay off in extreme wetness.

      A decent amount of snow on the trail. All the skinnies are covered in snow. The last drop is in mint conditions, though.

       It was a good trail. You had to bring your A-game for the skinnies & the ravine crossing.

       As it is a legal trail, you would have to submit a formal plan to Rec Trails BC through the FVMBA. You can go to the FVMBA website for contact info. Penny would be your contact.

       TRAIL IS CLOSED. Multiple people have been caught in the act trying to ride a unfinished line. This is no way to respect the builders / volunteers. Please stay off until it is complete

       Please respect the trail being closed. It's amazing in just over/under a year this trail went from being closed, to now being reopened in 2021! Mad respect and a big thanks to the builders and volunteers working to make it happen, that's so great! Without people like you, great trails don't exist. Respect the closure, and get stoked to shred Gold come 2021, once it's finished and reopened! So sick Big Grin \m/

       When will this trail re-open? Don’t want to ride it before it’s green lit by the builders! Respect to the shovel!

       Trail is black. Features are double black. Sign is for the feature (and all double black features are signed, with alternate route marked). Rec Sites & Trails will not authorize a double back trail. Signs and ratings are per RSTs requirements.

       Rode it for the first time on Sep 24th after a of mixed weather. Fan-freaking-tastic!

      I’m no expert writer, so I didn’t get to partake on the big drop skinny features, but for props to the hard work that went into making them.
