Marc My Word is an amazing trail. It has many technical and extremely fun granite features along its route. It is definitely on the harder side of a black rating, and it is recommended that you take your time to inspect each feature. This is an amazing trail and if you are a strong advanced rider you should definitely check this out.

       Minor detail but it’s “Marc” my word...in honour of the trailbuilder and how it’s spelled on the entrance trail sign. Fun trail!

       A somewhat old school trail in that there are short climbs throughout the trail, but lots of technical bits to keep riders challenged. It may not be the flowiest trail in town, but it's worth checking out if you like black tech trails.

       Awkward Flowy Fun is a good description! Lot of roots and tight moves to keep you on your toes! I really like this trail since it definitely feels longer than it is! Lots of features!
