This trail is the cherry on top when riding Porcupine rim Amazing views of Castle valley are afforded after 50 meters of riding. The trail has good flow with some spicy sections. There is some pedalling but no uphill sections. The exposed rock section near the bottom is a highlight of the trail giving the exposed granite slabs of Squamish a run for their money. Don't miss this trail!

      reporter Snow, ice, and mud covered trails. Not the fun powder snow you can cruise through, its crusty icy snow that stop you AND deep mud in between.

       Description is perfect - epic views, with good flow and some spicy sections. If you're a rook like me, keep your speed up and roll it baby. Retry the stuff you can't do - bc you can.
