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.

 What a gem. Another trail that's stood the test of time. Props to Peter for rockwork that lasts. And to Daniel Lui and to Jorn for the ace work on woodwork restoration - even going to the trouble of matching the look and feel of old stunts

 Crazy (but fun and doable) woodwork, slow and chunky with some ups and downs at the top of the trail
