The latest addition to Smallwood and a long ride with a staggering view of the Vallhallas, the first half is pure XC grinding with short but stout climbs, and winding sections around a few tiny lakes. Once back into the woods, some more cross country work will get you to the second half of trail that yields a seemingly endless descent of sublime, low-angle ripping.

Access Info

Queen Victoria road in Beasley. The trailhead is a little over 12km of mostly up on good gravel road, steep in places. When you get to the upper Kiosk around 12km the trail is just another 150m up the road.

      Awesome ride and watching the snow clouds moving in was a real treat. Thanks to the trail crew for recent excellent works rerouting and rounding...

       Once you begin descending, the first half has some great corners, and feels like a mountain bike trail. The second half of the descent however has very few corners at all, and feels like you’re descending an old road grade. I didn’t find it very rewarding after the long grunt to pedal up there.

       Agreed Sammy C, NCC is starting a new lower section to remove most of rail grade and last bit of logging road to Antler. Should be a huge improvement when finished.

       In 2019 NCC added a new trail called ‘Below The Gods’ which replaces the need to ride down the old wagon trail at the end of Valleluja.

       I didn’t check the trail condition and found a lot of downed trees. Some very fresh. I’d say around 50+ that are like 16”. Unridable. Bike 30sec, bushwhacked around, bike 30 sec, crawl under, bike 10 sec… throw bike over… smile, bleed, curse. Great views though, no snow.

       Great trail but around 60+ trees down seriously interrupt the ride and add a lot of time to cross every single one. I wish I had known... should have checked TrailForks!
