Huff & Puff would best be described as a trail that is right smack dab in the middle of the Mountain Shadows trail system. It’s very fast riding, with some exceptional cornering and short sprinty sections. The northern section of this trail is a definite favourite.

This trail can be broken down into two halves. The southern half runs from Kobe’s to its second junction with Magic Dragon junction (note: Huff & Puff has 2 junctions with Magic Dragon). This section rides well in either direction.

The northern half of Huff & Puff runs from the aforementioned second Magic Dragon junction to Quentin’s. This northern section of trail is best ridden in a northerly direction. Although it is technically a two-way trail, it’s best to ride that section one-way going north. This part of the trail is all about the down in open country. There are some small features on this trail, plus one gap jump, all are just off the main line. The finish of this trail is at an intersection with Quentin’s trail.
