Roots. Lots of them. Enough fun to start at the 142nd Street Bridge and then turn around and do it again from the other direction. And then the Back Breaker Trail.

Access Info

East Trailhead: Under the 142nd Street Bridge over MacKinnon Ravine
West Trailhead: First right on the MacKinnon Access Trail as it drops into the ravine from Summit Drive near 148 Street

Very dry save for 2 small spots towards the West access, but they're nearly dry too. A little more exposed in some areas than previous years, but...
