Very high-speed downhill mountain bike trail, one of the most popular flow trails in Nanaimo. Super fun berms, jumps and two drops with roll downs. Great trail for leaning skills and progression.
For everyone's safety, please do not hike on this trail and keep dogs on-leash unless riding down it.
Sempiternal \sem-pih-TER-nul\ adjective. : of never-ending duration : eternal.
