Perhaps the favorite trail of the Selkirk Recreation District.
Endless loopy, bermed switchbacks.
Climbs extremely well with only a few "chin on your stem sections".

Access Info

Downhill: From the end of Blizzard Dr enter onto 2 track and within 300 yards bear left and hang on.
Climbing: Take a left in Toilet Bowl turn from Sparky or enter trail system from switchback on Snowplow Road

 A lot of fun. Dirt was packed and damp! Super fast. No blowouts or loose sections. Road Highpoint from the top, Ninja and ended with Sparky. Saw 2 young cougar running down the trail on Sparky. They jumped off trail at the old jeep trail and went up. Crazy!
