       As an intermediate north shore rider, this trail is one of my new favourites. Quite an easy blue, super fun, flowy, and there‚Äôs nothing but berms, easy rollers and very little technical aspects to this trail.

       Be aware that there is a wasp nest near the end of Lorax. They are not happy!
