Happy Hour starts with a short climb with the occasional off-camber corner leading to the start of Spirit Bear. From there, the trail drops in for deep turns and more off-camber goodness as it rapidly darts from turn to turn. A couple of tricky root sections and some flow add to the good times.

New extension (2019) almost triples the length of the trail, and drops you down all the way to Lower Devilcross. The extension is rowdy and technical, with some great bridges, drops and lots of roots - a strong blue bordering on black in difficulty.

      The trail would be great but it is closed for thinning. The trail has trees across the trail and there is no possible way to ride it.
