Double black stunts not for the faint of heart. Elevated skinnies, committing rock rolls & ramps will test your cojones. Armoured trail offers ride arounds on every structure. If you continue to Lower Oilcan, don't expect anything of the same as L.O. is primarily an All Mountain trail devoid of structures.

Accessed off Mountain Hwy exits back onto Mountain Hwy.
