A classic decent from the summit of the Tzoo. Several steep rocky downs with some ride around possibilities and some technical short climb sections. Great views over Cowichan Bay. Not the trail to take as an low/intermediate rider. Advanced riders will love it. Drop that post Intersects with the Cross Trail. Go right at the bottom to access Danylizer to head to the Kaspa parking or Chicken Run to continue the ride for another loop.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       Trail description is right, nice rocky faces, with ride around options. The ride arounds have become quite prominent, so is worth a look around when riding first time. Think if in doubt and want the more technical line, look left. Great trail.
