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.
