Fantastic fast, bermy trail. You get a lot of fun for your climb, about 20 minutes worth. Riders of all skill levels can enjoy this trail. Aside from a few technical areas, the squid line is perfect for a beginner rider who is comfortable with singletrack trails, while for more experienced riders, the trail is fast and flowy, with enough variety to keep it interesting. Features several short climbs and a longer climb at about the halfway point; The trail surface is narrow in places, and is very long for new riders, especially if combined with riding up the road.

 I'm surprised that nobody has reviewed this trail yet. Especially given its popularity. The Squid Line is a fantastic flowy XC/AM trail. Anybody can ride this trail, I have been taking my son on it since he was 6 years old. However an expert rider can have a blast by hitting this trail at full throttle. At full speed there are some hidden jumps that pop out and immense flow! You will not be disappointed.

 Hi.

Know of similar trails closer to Vancouver? I'm a 57 year old mountain bike noob with a strong aversion to rock gardens and gnarly roots. Bobsled is alright but real short. Bridle Path, starting from its east end, way to rocky and rooty for my tastes.

Ta,

 Squid Line may be right up your alley.

Also, Half Nelson, Pseudo-Tsuga, and Roller Coaster in Squamish.

 Great trail. Rode it with my 4 year old son and 6 year old godson yesterday. May have been a little long for the 4 year old, but all came through with smiles at the end. NOTE; the trail deserves a green rating, but there are a few sections that can still be a bit challenging. I suggest you lead the trail and check out all sections as I found out the hard way as I watched my son pinball down a small rock chute. Well done Dash (4) and Troy (6) for killing it. So much fun, very proud of you boys.

 Amazing trail. Should be bump to a blue, met two people on the trail first thing they said to me was: this is not a green.

 Trail is running nicely, a little brush has fallen on to it throughout but nothing you can't ride over. Definitely a more technical trail than your average green!
