Built with a true community effort, led by the Race Face Shore Corps to connect Expresso with Pennzoil to create one continuous descent, the trail has high speed sections, pumps & rollers and even a couple of A Frame/launchers and table tops to keep things interesting. Everything is rollable so there's no consequences for the intermediate rider. Hit the rock roll near the exit for a happy ending. Thanks to all of the community supporters and volunteers who put their skin in the game including Sacre-Davey Engineering, Steed Cycles, Santa Cruz Bicycles, Arc'teryx & Methanex. Thank you to the District of North Vancouver for the permission and support to build the trail.
