A popular starting place for many Camp Sekani/Beacon Hill rides. This trail is a smooth single track that starts right past the red gate out of the Camp Sekani parking area. It traverses the south side of the park, paralleling Upriver Drive while intersecting and sharing service roads briefly. Eventually upon reaching the edge of the park it turns into a mellow winding climb up the slope to access the top of many sought-after Camp Sekani descents on it's way to the Esmeralda towers.

Disclaimer

Upchuck is now one continuous trail from Camp Sekani to the Towers for ease of navigation.

 Yes, Evergreen is cleaning up the mapping system and making it easier for people new to the area or that don't know they're way around beacon as well easier to navigate.

 Yeah, that's a smart idea, it's really hard to describe to new people how to get around up there. Just wanted to know, thanks!

 I think this is an excellent decision. There are just way too many tiny segments with different names. Having at least one long central trail will help with signage and navigation.

 Thanks, we're working hard to improve beacon and all other riding areas around.
