This fast section of Gun Creek trail is an old mining road that used to connect Gun Creek Rd to the Jewel Crk mine. Now the top couple of km's is in the Park, the rest not. Some slope instability restricts access at times. Motor vehicles are permitted, though should use caution, as should all users on this fast rolling, multi-use trail. Use caution on brushed in corners and heads up for the wet sections.

       Pedalled up from Gun Crk Rd. And hit large snow patches just below Jewel Bridge. Lots of log cutting done this winter, along with some bench work on the slide sections. Thanks!
