Mountain bike descent from the top of Knox Mountain. Some older rock roll lines exist but a groomed berm and jump line has been built for the full descent. This is a very short and fast descent with a paved road to the top. There is a parking lot near the top if you want to shuttle but pedalling up only takes about 20 minutes. Great views of the city and lake
