Squamish's newest trail is basically a 3km downhill pumptrack. A beginner/intermediate/advanced trail built by Big Red Ted Tempany and a cadre of local volunteers.

Not only is it Squamish’s first government-funded mountain bike trail, it is also being built with a mini-excavator and an eye for sustainability as its essential tools.
