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.

So this isn’t a double black diamond trail. It’s fun to ride and is a great build but it needs to be relabeled as single black only.

 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
