Two entrances for Pot Luck, on the west a single track coming off from Wally and the other entrance from the junction of Pogey, on this entrance a steep drop off as you go down and three berms along the trail that makes it flowy and fun, along the middle of the trail a junction that splits the trail, one on the west, the other goes northwest, couple of huge steep and dangerous drop off exists on the northwest trail and both trail joins after the second drop off on the northwest trail and exits out on a roller coaster ramps at the end of the trail. Please Do Not Ride When Wet Smile

       Be aware, Imperial Oil has fenced off access to Blair Witch from the bottom of Pot Luck and Hippie Chick. I ended up riding back out using Pogey, but you are now cut off from the easier ascents.
      The trails were in great shape though.
