The trail drops from the tower into some technical riding right off the start. This leads into beautiful, mellow alpine meadows. Once the meadows end, so does the easy riding. Steep and fun technical riding through old growth forest and cutblocks will challenge any type of rider. Midway down, the trail gets fast and flowy with newly refurbished sidehill sections that will have your rotors smoking. The lower section slows down into technical rocks and roots, testing your bike skills along with testing your now tired arms and hands. Take your bike across the highway at the bottom and go cool off in Lake Revelstoke at the Martha Creek campground. This 1500 metre descent is one of the best you’ll find for miles around and will have you returning again and again for years to come.

       Although the trail is superb and excellent technical fun the blowdown is the biggest I have ever seen and it was super risky to get through it. DO NOT do this trail until it has been bypassed for I doubt it ll be able to be cleared . It is massive!!! With out GPS i d still be lost out there! and there is NO CELL SERVICE
