       Great fun, and it kicks the snot out of you, but it feels more like an unfinished route than a trail. You can ride it at mach 10 and have your bike ricocheting below you. I think it’s an old quad trail, or a trail that someone dragged a rake down and donned it herefore though art a trail. It feels like a line in the woods that people started riding and just ended up a trail through repetition. Still good fun but after riding Chainsaw, Meat Draw, Rollercoaster, The Abyss trails, I mentally said “Wouldn’t ride that again”. Maybe I’m just an arrogant Vancouverite, but there’s better gold in them hills. With that whining said, the bottom half of Sexy Flanders and Max Power and Hutz are all smiles and dirt bike sounds as you’re ripping down them.

       Motos tracks on the top section of this trail, where the descent begins to the first fire road crossing. They really tear up the precious loam. Frig off dirt bikes.
