Continuation of the spicy route down the front side of Mt Manuel Quimper. A short climb up from Quimper Main takes you to a scenic overlook of Sooke Basin. The trail continues down several rocky steep sections, through some meadows then back into to the trees. More rock slabs and short step-downs await. The slab down into the creek crossing can be challenging in wet weather.

Access Info

Off old road Quimper Main, 250m uphill from the three-way junction with the exit of Airflow and the start of Raven.

      Buffed all the berms and rebuilt a few with what damp soil I could find. Filled some holes and cleaned up most of the loose marbles. Reworked...

       This is honestly one of the best trails I've ridden on the west coast. Easily comparable to the best Squamish / Whistler has to offer. Lots of rock features, great dirt, interesting topography.

       Awesome trail. It's called "Manzita" on all signage at the park.
