Rocky and challenging XC riding that takes you out to a pretty amazing, panoramic view of the Kootenay River valley and the northern peaks of the Bonnington Range. From here either turn around and ride back the way you came, or just before the lookout, drop in to Bigwood or Smallwood - DH.

       Fun trail both directions. Some challenging technical rock drops as you get closer to the lookout but mostly flowing. Great view from the lookout.
