 Wow long, fast and flowy! Despite this being a blue trail there are 4-5 spots through out the trail where you can challenge yourself with a black diamond alternate route for each technical section, i love that. Also some well crafted wood bridges and a few smallish rock slabs to roll out on.

A big thank you to Rob phoenix and all the volunteers and sponsors who whipped this trail into shape in such a short time (given the rather long cold and snow heavy winter we had).

Really a great trail for just about any level rider that was definitely needed in this part of Alice lake.

 Great work trailbuilders! Excellent mix of flowy trail with some optional harder features, little ups and fun downs, and beautiful scenery. A great addition to the network and so much fun to go for a ride on its opening day!

 This is an amazing trails! Modularsynth's description is great. As a newer rider it was nice to check out and ride some more technical areas while on a very flowy ride. Thank you builders!

 The trail is simply awsome, obviously a lot lot of work and thought have been put into it, but it is a black diamond trail. There is nothing intermediate or blue about this trail. Beware.
