      Gravel trail is in good shape but some of the post on the fence are rotten and need to be replaced. If some leans on the fence or climbs on it,...

      Compact snow / ice still present on some of the climbs, hike-a-bike required in those spots. Other than that all good.

       Offers a nice climb up to SFU if you're heading east from Hastings. You'll get a pretty good cardio workout and strengthen your muscles. Trail offers 3 rest stops on the way up and you can use them as benchmarks to push yourself to do the whole climb in one go. Centennial Way marks the halfway point going up, but I find the climb much easier after that point. Once you're at the top, it's a fairly easy ride towards Cardio Hill, Mel's trail, or Powerline trail.

      Going down is pretty fun as you can pick up some serious velocity, but be prepared to melt your brakes.
