A very technical single track trail on Maple Mountain. This trail challenges you both technically and physically as there is a fair amount of pedalling still involved that will very much please the enduro crowd. This trail is home to the Maple Mountain Enduro every year for a good reason.

       since when is this a double black diamond? you may need to be fit to enjoy maple syrup, but it certainly isn't technical enough to be rated a double black.

       Double blue square at best. It is also classified as a downhill trail which is very misleading. Every descent is met with more climbs
