This is an amazing jumpy, bermy section of trail at the Kimberley Nordic Centre. It includes three climbs, each a bit more difficult than the last, and three amazing descents. Great views from the top of each climb. A must do if in the area. Watch out for walkers and please ride clockwise.

       Really nice trail! Had a very small window of time to ride a trail in the area and glad I chose this one. Thanks to the trail builders for being awesome. This trail was a blast to ride. If I'm ever this way again I'll be riding it again for sure and hopefully get to see what else Kimberly has to offer.

       Very impressed with the trail, good mix of loose and fixed rocks with a flowy jump line at the end. If you aren't a fan of hills I recommend biking to the base of the 3rd climb using green rates access trails.

       If you have time for only one ride, do this one.

       Very good conditions on July 28,2018, not very dusty or smokey. Excellent ride. Some long tough climbs for our skill level, but very rewarding downhills.

       Lots of loose rocky climbs. Great trail! Very well built. Fun descents. The trail time is wrong, there‚Äôs no possible way a normal person on a decent bike could do this in under thirty minutes. My wife and I ride a lot, and with minimal stops to take in some of the beautiful views, we were over an hour and fifteen min of total time with just under an hour of ride time. (57 min)

       My son and I just saw a Black Bear with two cubs near cardiac viewpoint. Keep your head on a swivel up there.

       Hats off to the trail builders for this one!!
      A true modern "all mountain" ride with a bit of everything.
      Much of the climbs are "dark blue" and very rough and techy. Probably not one for novice riders due to the techy and punchy climbs.
      Currently the last descent has quite a bit of water damage in spots, so just be aware before you come around the corner at mach chicken.
      Highly recommend this trail though!!
