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.

       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.

       The trail resembles Pemby's cream puff. So close to being a very epic janky/slabby flow trail but too many rock drops for my liking to keep it in the flow category. Might need to ride it a couple times to know the quirks which may change my mind. Also very blown out right now.
