An advanced level trail that takes advantage of rocky outcrops of bedrock that are common all over the Shuniah Mines area of the park. Riders can expect tight and technical lines along with plenty of rocky sections, mandatory wooden features and steep sections (depending on which direction you are riding). Keep an eye open for small optional features.

The trail is best ridden from south to north and the lower portion of the trail is a steep descent.
