A glorious bit of sub alpine single track. Completely atypical of Penticton trails; dirt, loam, roots, moisture.

A couple of old stunt from the bike park days at Apex but it is clear which ones are not ridable. When it doubt air it out.

It finishes back on Grandfathers so you can either go back up, or find your way to The Good, Bad, Ugly below the cat track.
