Everyone needs a good Side Piece to ride every once in a while. Named after it's close parallel to the Creekbed trail, Side Piece has quickly become everyone's favourite trail. It's fast, fairly straight, insanely flowy, and is one of the few trails in the forest that was built for the sole purpose of fun! It's not very technical but expect to be going very fast on the hardpacked ground that bikers and hikers have collectively tamped. Side Piece allows you to fly through one of the oldest growth forests in the area which is also super neat!
