Gord Clay's Mindbender is an old school tight and twisty singletrack. Best ridden from south to north though makes for an extremely difficult but doable climb the other way. Frustrating and fun.
If you are seriously injured on trails in the Bike Park, please inform the Trails Director at: trails@simbs.com.
