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.

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

       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.

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

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

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