North Starz was added to the Starz network. It really starts in Anmore at Dogwood Dr. and Michael Rosen Park - follow the gravel path into the forest, hang a right and follow the new TORCA signs. A great addition to the Starz loops or for an add-on from an Eagle Mountain ride. Follow it into Starz lines and add a couple different options (Flavelle climb, Bert Flinn climb, Lower Backyard run & climb, Nels' Connector) and you can stretch this into a Starz trifecta with a return through North Starz for a good 17+km ride Fun, flowy, a couple very short punchy climbs and 3 water crossings. It has an exit line to the gasline & Bert Flinn - stay right after the lower creek crossing and follow the trail out - turn left. The re-entry to North Starz is straight out of Bert Flinn boardwalks in past new TORCA sign.

       I'd suggest North Starz as the next progression trail after Jo-Jo Finn. The features aren't difficult (although that rock roll is scary the first time), but the trail includes some short, punchy first-gear climbs with switchbacks that will test your fitness level and skillz. Check trailforks the first couple of times through so you don't get lost at forks in the trail.
