This trail puts a challenge out there. Unlike the normal Kamloops trails, Shep's has more rocky sections, very tight switchbacks and technical challenges. It is fun but you need your wits about you if you want to blaze down this one

       This trail was worked on and re-routed in summer 2017 and is a great technical trail in Kamloops. If you rode it prior to then, it's worth revisiting. Has a mix of rocky tech near the top and steep loam turns near the bottom. There are a few super tricky corners. No mandatory features/jumps/etc.
