Wonderful DH/AM descent off the summit of Scafe. There are many sections with flow and many more sections of gnarly, techy stuff. Includes a stream crossing near the middle and a rough, loose rocky section that can be treacherous when wet. Fun and well worth the 7km pedal from the Thetis Lake parking lot.

 Fun trail down, not too technical or steep. Easy black.

 Found a well-designed trail with some decent sized jumps in the area. Just not in the best shape right now
