The upper portion of Tunnel Vision is a good technical descent that takes you from the Microwave trail to the bottom of the Kadenwood subdivision and features a few rock slabs and moves with one longer steep rock face just above the Hind Sight junction. It is often linked with Big Timber to make an excellent route from Function Junction to Creekside. Be aware that many of the stunts on this trail are older and in need of repair - ride with caution.

      reporter the bit of snow at the bridges before Hind Sight is probably gone, was only a little bit left a couple of nights ago.

       Rode up this morning to get to business time - a few sections I had to walk but mostly ridable. Made for a nice loop from bay shores. I saw a frisbee golf course in there too and would love to know more about it

       it's just a unsanctioned frisbee golf course, not much to know about it....as we finish the new descending line above the existing trail, the old skid road portion of tunnel vision will see a few re-routes to make it an easier climb to get to the Cheakamus area.

       Just ridden, conditions are prime, some slick sections on the roots but the loam and dirt is amazing. Giddy up

       Combined this with Hindsight after climbing Microwave access road,for a loop deadset to get the juices flowing. The rock face is a butt-puckerer from the top but easily doable for the confident riders out there. The dirt up here is epic too, juicy juicy loam.
