An epic backcountry ride taking you from the alpine down to valley bottom. Starts off with some tighter corners and gradually becomes faster with more traversing. The whole trail flows really well with nothing particularly technical or steep. Hopeful has received some excellent upgrades over the past few years including two new bridges in 2019.

This trail is a remote backcountry ride which is not part of the main bike park. There is no cellphone coverage for the majority of the trail. Be prepared to be self sufficient with appropriate equipment. Well worth the pedal up for those who are prepared
