The premier freeride trail in the Cariboo and possibly in the interior, Snakes and Ladders was completely re-built in 2012. It incorporates over 22,000 board feet of Cariboo lumber in sky berms, tables, step downs, and other features with the tightest and fastest single track around.

Access Info

The trail starts off Bysak Road at the top of the Westsyde network, You'll see the obvious start area next the picnic bench and kiosk. Pedal across the Powerline and into the lower section where things get really exciting. You'll end in the River Valley where you'll turn right to exit back to the cemetery parking area.

 First 4 km is more blue 'enduro' with black stunts to test your skill, and after crossing ravin it becomes a blackish dh line with black stunts to the valley bottom.

 Park in lot below cemetery in Williams Lake. Cross the creek on Lower Max. Ride up Lower Max to a road. Cross the road. Ride up Spokey Hollow to another road. Cross the road. Continue up on Hung. Cross the Power Line and enter the trees. Join Snakes and Ladders. Go left to ride to the trailhead, go right to begin going downhill.
