This 4km section of the Legacy Climb was machine built by Dream Wizards with funds from Forestry. You will find the large trees, shade and mellow grade a nice break from the previous sections of the Climbing Trail. This section follows an old railway bed from the first time this area was logged. You will pass under Angry Midget and please yield to Half Nelson riders as you cross one of the fastest sections of HN. Next riders will then find themselves in selectively logged block that takes you up to Full Nelson look around for some amazing views across the Lava Flow. Beyond the Full Nelson junction the forest becomes tighter and the trail narrows and begins to twist more with lots of ups and downs. Climbers will enjoy the short punchy efforts needed to make it up clean.
