Pretty much incorporates the best of squamish minus the machine-built flow. This hand-built trail is a masterpiece, a labour of love, and a great all-round ride. Rock slabs, bridges, flowy loam... it's all there. The access climb gets your heart going and then it's pretty much all downhill from there minus a few pedal spots. Great flow throughout, you don't need to use your brakes the whole time.

      Great riding with a few wet sections. Most of the slabs are riding very well with great traction.

      Trail’s been riding well since the rain stopped. Slab section about 2/3rds of the way down has a pretty nasty bomb hole under the first roll in...

      A great trail with some fairly large steep slabs in it, would be better if the access wasn't so horrible!

      Awkward trail to get too, loose fire road cling up, but an absolute gem, could be one of Squamish best trails hands down, so much going on here, some drops, some slabs, lots of tech, and beautiful woodwork, how can you ask for more

      Such a great trail! Countless rock features to ride. Best of everything on this one. The climb to get to the trailhead is technical and demands a lot of energy. The trailhead is a large rock slab between a couple of trees and a small dip at the bottom.

      The best of Squamish for sure. Rock rollers, steep rocky/rooty pitches, xc climbing, and some fast flow. Other trail favorites in Squamish are:

      Really fun, never gets extremely difficult or risky other than the initial rock roll.

      Pretty challenging rock slabs if it’s slippery, great when it’s not! Has wood and drops too!

      Awesome trail. It was the final stage in the 2018 Gryphon and oh boy was it scary pinning it down this trail at race speed. At the bottom we were laughing because at one point there were 8 fixing their flat tires! Very well built trail that makes excellent use of the terrain. Super fun rock rolls. Would ride again.

      A fun, challenging, but never crazy trail, in surprisingly good condition. One of Squamish's best.
