Yet another classic brought back from the dead thanks to the NSMBA TAP program. New tables, optional step down and plenty of fast & flowy terrain, the trail is good for big or little bikes. The old drop has recently got a tranny with rumour of a higher, shorter take off in the near future. Avoid the chunder exit by riding straight across Incline to connect to the BP along the short & sweet Pingor Connector built by the Shore Corps.

Accessed from the powerlines and ending at the Baden Powell.

       Top 10 feet is slushy but the rest of the trail is in mint condition!
