Here's another great trail in the '49er group, with similar flavour. The trail begins next to the '49er/Choker entrance, on the right hand side. The first section is a mix of easy descent and a little short climb though the older forest with beautiful large trees, with a nice bridge feature about midway through. It crosses the access road, via a second bridge and continues though a section that again is mainly descent, with a short climbing section. There is a small ramped bridge midway through, that leads into a nice flowing section of curves, then exits the forest via a wooden ramp, to crosses a logging road. The final and longest section of Hotwheels will free familiar to Jackleg and Moosehead, Hotwheels closest neighbours. Great descent, with more flowing curves through beautiful forest.

      The four trees that were across the trail, just after the ramp in the upper sections, have been cut-out.

      The upper trail needs lots of work. The builders just cut the trees but didn't pull or fill the roots. Be cautious on the first half of the trail...
