Pamplemousse was built by hand over 3 years taking 3,400 hours and 380 volunteers. Its construction was sponsored by Ride BC (ridebc.ca) and material expenses by SORCA. Thanks to the Squamish Nation, this trail is built on their land. We are guests in their beautiful forest. Please be respectful of the trail and forrest (ride don't slide).

The trail requires advanced cornering and jumping skills. Please ride with caution your first time down. There are exposed benched sections, steep corners and an optional trail gap.

To support the maintenance of this trail consider buying a Pamplemousse jersey at Corsa Cycles as well as becoming a SORCA trail supporter or member.

Access Info

On the right about 200 m into Credit Line. If you are riding south on Jacks trail after Pamplemousse please ride slowly and be respectful of other users.

       This trail a great addition to the Alice Lake network, refreshing and a different trail to the area. The corners are gold! Good job

       Now one of the best fast laps in Squamish. Optional trail gap is surprisingly large, but well built with excellent landing.
