A memorial mountain bike gravity trail in honour of our friend, Luke Chandler (1971 - 2017). Trail starts out with a slight ascent to rider's right. Once you've gained the height of the land, a series of slabs lead into several chutes and even a gap jump off an old spur. Know before you roll and as Luke would say, it's a free beach!
