  • Global Ranking
  • Year Opened

A trail with a mix of everything; switch-backs, steep and rooty sections, drops, skinnies, jumps, berms, and speed. The lower half can be ridden up, which is the recommended way to access the upper section (see below)

There are many man-made technical features. They can be bypassed without difficulty. Check TTF's before you ride - some are getting a bit antiquated and should probably be dismantled.

Keep an eye out for a reroute called Kill Site, which veers off to the left after about 250 meters or so.

Access Info

From the Community Trail, climb up lower Good Riddance until it crosses two very close OHV trails. The second one is shown on the base map above. Take a left on the higher OHV trail and follow it 0.5 km to the Gold Creek Road. Turn right on the road and follow it to the top. When the road ends, there will be a OHV trail heading off to the right up a steep short hill. Good Riddance starts at the top of this hill and is marked by a sign.
Good Riddance may also be shuttled by going up towards the Frank Slide Interpretive Center and crossing the cattle guard up Gold Creek Road just before getting to the interpretive center.
