A fun blue trail offering a little bit of everything - some climbing, some low angle rock faces, some fast single track, and some bench cut berms. It is also the easiest option of the three trails on that side of Ring Creek (Hoods, Somewhere Over There, Powerhouse Plunge). Although there was some logging in the area in 17/18, the trail has reopened, is in great shape, and thankfully only the bottom portion was impacted by the logging.

Access Info

Climb Power House Plunge - Access, turn off onto Power-Hoods, climb the access road, and turn right at the Hoods/Bonsai fork. Then hit of Poop Alley afterwards to get back to the university area.

 Trail needs a rebuild.
It suffered some major erosion after the two massive rain storms.
