No other trail in Squamish is like this one, and you will either hate it or love it.
If you carry some speed and trust the bike, the trail has magical flow.
If you ride slow, and battle it, you will curse it, and want the trail paved.

Just think Bob Marley thoughts and go with the flow.

       Love it, surprised this doesn’t get talked about more. Rooty, rocky fun time! Very east coast style.
