This advanced level (black diamond) trail pays respect to "old school" Shuniah Mines. Riders will find a series of short, steep climbs and descents. The tread is mostly natural with plenty of loose shale sections, heavily rooted sections and some of the best natural rock gardens found in the area.

      reporter 5-10cm of fresh snow today.. The trails will likely be passable, but definitely on the soft side. Keep an eye open for the groomer if you are on...
