A trail of two halves - ride it form the gravel pit at the top of the Shuttle Road and the first half is very steep, but stunt free, regularly crossing the shuttle road. About half way down it changes into something much more mellow: lots of log rides and wooden stunts, all of which should be looked at before being attempted. Note the steep ride around on the map if you're getting tired of having your privates rubbing on your back tire.

Access Info

Ride of drive up the shuttle road. Start is on the left as you look up at the mountain, where 48 Hours also starts. They split shortly after the start. If you want to miss the steep rocky stuff at the top, then start on 48 Hours until you get to the "Kootenay Anal" section. Turn left here and loop out to the left. As it turns back right towards 48 Hours again, there is a left that will take you down to join the mellower sections of Three Kings.

 Full moto, perfect mix of everything that is good. Steeps, jumps, berms, and high speed sections
