Built in 2015, this is a newly opened, flow single track with less jumps than Feel The Love but still a ton of fun. There is some scary sidehill on it so make sure that you are on the inside of the trail to keep from washing out. Other than that there may be the odd steep section but it is short and walkable. This trail was built to contrast Feel The Love's quick short descent and make more value for your big climb. It drops elevation slower and switch backs to keep the trail from being over in ten minutes. The lower section is now complete. At the moment there is no established single track connection between two. See Travellin' Man (Bottom) for more details.

      2 Sketchy washed out sections about 2/3rds of the way down when the trail gets super skinny. 2 metres wide each right through the trail. Super...

       The description says it all, when you just don't want to go Feel The Love, this XC-ish descent is a great option. It feels like the climb you just did so don't come into it ready to coast down hill the entire time. You WILL be pedaling and you will be covering a lot of ground.
      It has the same feel as the other trails around, same terrain and same little sniper berms.
      Again, NOT a downhill trail but I really enjoyed it as an alternative to Feel The Love (though Santa's is still my go to).

      Contrary to the current description, this did flow from 'Top' to 'Bottom' portions via singletrack.

       As a XC rider, this is MY kind of downhill trail. Not too steep, so you can actually "let it go" without riding your brakes the whole way.
      While the terrain forced the use of quite a few switchbacks, sections between were very flowy and fun. It would help make the switchbacks more flowy to widen them; they are so narrow that you have to slow way down to stay on the 18" wide trail, as the grade really steepens. A little in-slope bank would also help. SO, this would be a super XC/DH trail with just a little more work on the switchbacks, guys.
      NOW, to get off my soapbox, again kudos to the builders/managers to see the need for a more XC type downhill for Smith Creek. Thanks guys, my wife and I enjoyed (well, me more than her).

       Trail is getting pretty narrow. Couldn't really flow much as was worried about falling off the trail most of the time. Wish we had spent more time on the other trails.

       Amazing trail with a few off camber switchbacks to keep you on your toes. Two washed out sections from recent mudslides are super sketchy, but luckily only a few meters long. Other than that, pure XC heaven, really enjoyed the decent!
