Down the mountain from just below the gazebo at the top of TTOP. Super-fun, fast, good flow. Lots of berms and a couple bridges. Rated as a blue square, but great fun with a bit of speed.

Access Info

From the Gazebo on Radar Road at the top of TTOP, turn right and head down Radar Road for about 200m. The entrance to Growler is on the right.

Huge tree down halfway... a bit of a tough hike-around.

 Have ridden quite a few trails on a road trip through North America and this is one of the best I'd say. So much fun! Nice balance of tech and machine made trail.
