Snakes is the 2020 re-creation of the original "Courthouse Trail" named Snakes & Ladders. As part of the Hub Project, TORCA has completely redesigned and rebuilt this classic trail to a hardened-surfaced flow trail with berms, small table top jumps, and rollers for progression of skills for beginner riders (hence the new name without "ladders"). This is the smoothest and easiest downhill flow trail in Terrace - enjoy

Access Info

Use the UpCycle trail from the Sportplex parking lot to climb to the top of the descent, or access the trail from Walsh Connector or riding down UpCycle from the Flathead Loop.

Disclaimer

NOTE: The newly constructed trails may have LOOSE GRAVEL for much of summer 2020 until it settles in. Please ride with caution and avoid skidding as much as possible!
