       When we rode this trail it was super loose, super blown out and incredibly overgrown. Turned out more of a chore than a pleasure for a back country epic.

       TBF, since the fires in 2009 this trail has always been super loose/blown out and overgrown in the summer. Before the fire it was probably one of the better descents in the Sea to Sky, it's still rad imo, just wait until fall when the veg and bugs die off.

       Single track, not well maintained long descent... you can't even see where your front wheel is going, very overgrown, I'm glad I didn't do the helidrop because I would be disappointed to pay for that. It's unfortunate...

       Bottom third genuinely great. Some sections of thick bush. Make sure you have fresh brake pads and a fresh pair of shorts (code brown)

       went aug 4, and it was indeed very overgrown. i loved the trail personally, though its quite blind and fast (check your brakes!) for the first 2 thirds. keep your eyes forward and you'll be fine. bottom third is incredible. hikers seem conscious but be aware of their possible presence

       Ticks are out in full force. Dogs got 15 deer ticks on them, might have occurred near the trail entrance/parking spot across the bridge. We hiked up about 4 km. Trail was clear.
