Another legendary trail built by Gary McFarlane, The trail is an easy black, with optional intermediate options (all signed with a chicken).

The trail offers so many different styles of riding - XC, rock slabs, downhill rips, and some interesting wood-work. Definitely one of the highlight trails of the 2013/14 building season.

       One of the best Technical trails ridden with few medium sized rock rolls. Rode as a intermediate black ridder.

       This is quite possibly one of the finest trails in existence. Flowy, slabby, fun tech. Simply sublime.

       Rupert is my favorite trail in Squamish. Fun rock slabs, cool wooden features, plenty to session, and easy to lap! Other trail favorites in Squamish are:
