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.
