Pleasure trail is a very hard slower-speed highly technical trail with some expert level advanced features. Ride with caution. It has a number of well built wood features. Some rock rolls are quite exposed. A mistake could result in crashes over 10 foot drops.

Your mindset for the first run should be to go very slow into sections with slabs and uncertain run outs.

When very loose and dry, or when wet some sections will be absolutely treacherous.

       Awesome trail with some really cool features. A black with parts that could be called double black. Some really nice flow and rock faces.

       Real black diamond. Much harder than other black diamonds in area with lots of double black features. Beautiful trail with lots of rocks, rock faces and slabs. Must have been a lot of work involved

       One of the best trails I've ridden. Makes spectacular use of the terrain. Master trail builders at work on this one.

       Such a fun trail. Instant classic. It's either the easiest double black or the hardest black in Squamish I guess. I think the controversy is because it's very safely built but is unrelentingly awesome from tip to tail. There's a lot of tech moves and it's physically demanding to ride it top to bottom - for me anyway!

       It’s a double black! I would NOT send someone down this trail who was just getting familiar with black diamond trails. No way. This thing is tough, unrelenting, scary, steep, rad, fun, beautiful, SO hard, and maybe one of my brand new favorites. Even the ride-arounds are hard. There’s a razor rock section at the bottom that makes you laugh when you make it through without a flat. The amount of work that went into this is staggering. Just a gorgeous, gnarly, ultra techy trail. So good.

       This definitely needs a good look at on your first run, if only because it’s so beautifully made! There’s a look that may look in-doable on the first run, and there are certainly some sections I’d advice the best of riders to check out before dropping in, but I think it’s one of those trails that becomes more and more pleasurable (pun intended) the more you ride it.

       In regards to difficulty, I would say black and a half, as there are ride arounds for some definitely double black sections.
      (I'm going with a BC rating system, if you're coming from elsewhere, this is most def a double black.) As the description says, you best be on your game, and you will be rewarded, if you're not on your game, you will probably walk a lot at best, or injure yourself at worst.
      This to me is what the shore was 20 years ago and is absolutely a classic. I would go as far as calling not a destination bucket list trail.
      So many different features in one trail; slab, rolls, jumps (semi) skinnies.
      Thank you trail builders!
