Flowy trail through old forest starting with small berms and jumps, leading into several optional technical features, including gaps, bridge drops and rock drops. Lower section finishes with more flowy and tight switchback single track.
All features are bypassable making main trail a Blue. However, riding all features makes it a Black run that can be challenging/entertaining for advanced riders as well.

       Would rate this closer to black than blue. Too many rocks and roots for my liking. Also have found there is a lack of trail markings/signs in general on the York Lake trail system compared to Fernie trails.
