The first half is twisty cross country single track. Then there's a short punchy climb. The last bit is machine built and fast. The top few turns can get soggy in the wet, but the end is always in great condition. Links well with Lumberjack's. Keep an eye out for hikers.

       A classic SQUAMISH trail for the past 25 years that wraps up any ride ending on Perth with a big smile on your face. A crowd favorite for the Test of Metal. Good for any rider. Beginners may find the last pitch worth a walk.
