Smells Like Bacon was the first flow trail built in Northern BC in July 2006. It is a short hike-a-bike from the bottom back to the top so no need for shuttles. Starting right at the top of the 4 Cross and Piglet trail, Smells Like Bacon is a roller coaster of fun starting on a large wood platform, pump sections, log rides, jump lines, berms, step ups, drops, wall rides, you name it this trail is packed with it! Gotta ride this trail when you're checking out the bike park.
