    RecSites & Trails BC

A federally Funded trail. Funded by the National Trails Coalition (NTC) and building was supervised by a MTB trail designer.
Look for the TOP GUN emblem carved into some deadwood along this route. One of the favorite trails at Tansky. Steep ups and downs with a short cut to avoid a dangerous rocky side slope which (we hope)allows novices some confidence. The MTB community has short cut the entrance to this trail to allow a drop in from the #3 track above TopGun. This has been used in several enduro events and is considered to be a downhill route only, as it drops straight down the fall line and is subject to erosion.

Access Info

MTB ,Drop in from the short cut off #3 (unmarked) DirtBikers will want to enter from #3 just east of HardHat and ride the whole trail. Expert riders will ride this challenging trail in either direction but a novice should stick to downhill only.
