Classic armoured trail, single track reinforced with rock work and many cedar planks, so rides well in the wet. The double black stunts are
numerous, and not for the faint of heart, but all are optional with fun ride arounds. When you are ready, the elevated skinnies, committing rock rolls
& high, steep, narrow ramps will test your skill. Without the optional features, the single-black trail rides similarly to 7th Secret but a bit more technical. 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.
