Supermegadeth is a local favourite. All-mountain DH romp with many fun moves. Great trail for the intermediate to advanced rider willing to pedal a bit. Take Awesome for fast flow at the bottom, or ride the end of Death for steeper lines and a few drops.

       They should have named this SMF instead of SMD.
      SMF= Super mega fun!
      This trail is a blast!

       Fast, fun single track. Not sure it deserves a black diamond rating.

       I would recommend this trail to anyone who likes riding uphill from the top of the shuttle road. The top section should have a green rating because I can find steeper sections of sidewalk in rossland. There was one or two technical sections but does not merit a black. Would not recommend this trail
