      And for your viewing pleasure, the new Mustang trailhead sign. No doubt the same same generous artist who did the smiling kittycat for Flatter...

       Every day I ride this it gets better and better. This is a gem on the south side of town. Hope to see you out enjoying the trail!

       When doing this in reverse does anyone else have to walk up the steep part right before the clearing or do I need to step my game up haha.

       It's do-able but its tough. Definitely have to be focused to make it to the top.

       I will have to try again when its dry. I find I don't have an issue with my legs, I'm leaning forward but still the bike wants to tip backwards a bit. Probably because i'm not carrying enough speed once it gets really steep. I also don't have a major granny gear on a 1X10 but i figured any less gear ratio on this steep climb might have a traction problem anyway. Wish me luck.

       I just discovered this trail this morning and really enjoyed it. It will definitely become a favourite on the SW side of the city. Thanks to the builders and I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements. Thanks to the builders.

       Loved this trail the first time I hit it. Has a couple steeper sections in the first half that might intimidate those with less experience (bit steeper than “GO Trail” by Terwillager for reference) but the last half is very fun, great to rip through that little ravine on a hot day! Even if you’re concerned about the steeper sections just try it, walk them if you have to as you’ll love the rest!

       Anyone have a suggestion on how to hit the hairpin at the south end going down? I’ve done it a couple times before but skidded out* thrice this past weekend.
