Hot Tuna was built by Curtis Bennett over a span of 5 years starting in 2013. He wanted to build a different style of trail that he thought was lacking in Squamish. This trail was built as a black jump trail with optional double black options and features steep berms. If the entrance is too steep, please continue to Mad Hatter which is a great blue trail to the north of Hot Tuna. The upper half of this trail does not do well in wet conditions, please ride responsibly. The trail is named after his dog Luna.
