This is the newest trail at Leadmine and will push you to control limits. Knife Edge can be accessed from both directions off Arbutus Park. Traveling South to North will start on smooth single track into a few switchbacks then right into the ridge rock garden. Serious trials skills required to climb or hike a bike in doubt. From North to South is more downhill option with again trials skills needed to descend. At the high point on this trail great views of the Hamant Brook are to be enjoyed.
