       Steepest thing I've ridden at Galbraith. Really fun and flowy, although the climb out sucks if it's muddy and slick.

       Favorite trail on Galbraith. It's steep by Galbraith standards, but not very steep on an absolute scale. If you're ridden in BC you won't consider it steep at all. Super fun trail!

       There are no wolves on this trail despite the name, there is a really nice trail though.

       This is a steep, loose, rutted and technical trail. It is natural - reminds me of Cougar Ridge - with some great viewing spots through the trees. Some sections are a little intense for me but overall it is a classic!

       Great condition right now. It’s steep and technical with lots of exposed roots.
