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.

Pingu is good to go. Watch out for deer in the area, I almost ran into a couple at the bottom of the ladder drop/roll.

reporter Snow-free, but there is a tree down on the powerlines that has fallen into the entrance. The lower entrance is clear.

 Is the ladder over the step down going to be permanent now? I hope not...
