Be sure to visit the lookout at the top, before heading down Knob Located just before reaching the tower at the summit of Sumas Mountain (elevation 3000 ft approx.) Trail features some fast sections, mixed with technical areas more suitable for advance riders including a few steep sections, rocks, and roots and a few nice rock rolls or drops. Some peddling required, especially at the beginning.
