This track is basically in three parts. The top third is in young pine trees and is fairly open and easy riding. Sometimes a little overgrown in places, or boggy when its wet. The middle section is down through some fir trees and is shady and good riding with a few minor technical challenges. The last section can only be described as a "Root Fest" and is a real challenge when wet. There is a bypass to avoid this section if desired.

Access Info

You need a Hancock Forest Access permit to ride this trail. They can be purchased from bike shops in Nelson for $10 (for a 2 week permit) or annual permits come as part of Nelson Mountain Bike Club membership (www.nelsonmtb.club)
