A classic tech / flow trail built and maintained by Ride BC (www.ridebc.ca) and friends. Pamplemousse was built by hand over 3 years taking 3,400 hours. 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 forest (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 or picking up a 6 pack or pint of Pamplemousse Pale Ale at Howe Sound Brewing Smile

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.

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

       the trail report function is better than leaving a comment on this page, and the builder had the tree cut out by mid-aft yesterday.

       Super happy fun times! If you like steep corners and slightly pooping yourself due to speed, check this grapefruit out!

       If Cumberland had sex with Fromme and then a doctor inserted some DNA from Robert's creek they'd give birth to this trail. Maybe the coolest most unique mix of flow, tech and single track around. Heaps of fun.
