Trash is great single-track trail that winds through the forest on the east side of Cheakamus river. The trail winds it way south, paralleling the Cheakamus river and offers a couple of nice viewpoints. Although rated 'blue' it has some challenging sections and could easily be upgraded to 'black'

Access Info

Make your way south of the Village to Function Junction and turn left (south) off the highway onto Chekamus Lake Road. If you need parking, there are ample spots available along this road. The start can be a little difficult to find so we have included a photo of the trailhead - it starts just past a 30km/h sign but before you enter the Cheakamus Crossing neighbourhood. The trail can be ridden in both diorections (i.e. out and back) or, if you've had enough after one lap, follow the new Sea to Sky trail back towards Cheakamus Crossing.

Upgrade complete from S2S to the new suspension bridge. Enjoy. WORCA will be adding a new reroute section of single track later this year.

 Great single black trail, 1 big rock roll with lots of grip for brake pumping down slowly. Awesome spot by a small waterfall to take a break and head dunk on a hot day.

 Wet and slippery just how i like her Wink , Would advise to ride it from END to START (so opposite from trailforks). The END (or start) starts behind the Hi hostel.

 This trail is actual trash. Hard to link it together without having to walk sections. Total waste of time. Thought following it with Train Wreck and Runaway Train would make it better...it did not. All of these should be classified as hiking trails that you can kinda bike.
