Contains optional TTFs, steep rough terrain and moderately steep natural TTFs. Quite technical. Definitely very different from the new school trails and a step up in difficulty as well. It is well maintained and can be ridden with a decent amount of speed. A good introduction to the more challenging old-school trails.

Access Info

Accessed off Mtn Hwy past the 5th switchback at the large clearing about 20 meters
past Ladies Only.

 "Considered one of the easier North Shore trails". Maybe 10-15 years ago...

 A bit more challenging than expresso? Steeps a bit steeper. Iconic raised boardwalk with teeter totter and hairpin
