Mainly in the South Chilcotin Provincial Park, not your favourite Bike Park, so ride accordingly. NOTE: This trail is multi-use in both directions. It is used by packhorse trains, so ride with caution.

That said - This trail is an epic downhill as reward for the tough climb up.

Trail features great views on top and many root drops and ledges up to .5m in height on the decent. The trail bed is mainly sandy/kitty litter, creating dust issues in dry season and erosion issues. Ride don't slide, unless you plan to come back and do trail maintenance.
