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.

      This trail is wild! tech chunk and some fun steep bits. And man it is long! Next time I ride it i’ll bring the DH bike. Aside from a couple small pedally parts near the very top you’ll be glad to have as much suspension and brakes as you can get. In great shape right now, not a single tree down. Just gets dry towards the very bottom

      Sickest trail I have ever done. Relentless tech. Chunk on chunk. Now THIS is REAL mountain biking!!!!! Pedal up Martha Creek was a breeze and such a nice FSR to climb.

      A never ending jank speeder. No specific features just continually trying to find flow. Got repetitive. Not my jam but some may like. Upside: it’s beautiful at the top and descending thru different ecosystems was cool

      Awesome trail with a few snow patches in the top section, a couple of puddles down from there and the bottom half with dusty sections.
      Make sure you have a shuttle bunny as driving back up for a vehicle retrieval is a pain. About 2 hours round trip

      a would say its a hard black, beginning is super rocky, big rocks but not steep. then the meadow section where you pedal a little bit is beautiful. then it get more technical with roots and tricky steep section with rocks. after that the worst is done and the trail get really flowly and fast pretty much all the way down. one of revy best trail. road is not the worst but its not smooth, truck or suv only. it takes 40min to 1hr to drive to the top.

      Amazing trail, one of the highlights of my 2019 summer, going to head back again this year and camp at the top. Camped at Martha Creek campground last time which is nice, rolled back into camp high on adrenaline. Perfect. Road is accessible in a 4x4 with good clearance. Great views etc at the top.

      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
