Starts at the top of Crank Case just off the Repeater Tower Road. When you leave the road after Crank Case the trail becomes 'ravin' . This epic XC trail follows the height of land west above the Williams Lake River Valley .

You will cross iron pony on the right, cross a fence line, then Snakes and Ladders and farther on Outer Max to the right. Keep pedalling across the power lines and intersection with Backdoor till you reach an open meadow/swamp. Directly across the meadow is the final leg up to the first nipple. The trail rolls across a ridge, then drops along one of the sweetest DH's through a Fir forest to connect to Booga Wooga or down to river valley on Brakecheck.
