Vertical Smile Details
Multi-Use doubletrack descent with some short singletrack portions at the top. Bottom 1/2+ of trail is mixed gravel logging road leading to a poorly paved rural road. This trail used to contain significantly more doubletrack but was re-opened and used as a logging corridor within the last decade.
This descent can be accessed via a hike-a-bike from the baker creek drainage logging roads but due to the current nature of the trail it is best used only as a descent back to Christina Lake after completing the Christina Crest Trail.
Trail is multi-use, please watch for other users including motorized vehicles. Bottom portion of route is a well used rural road often with significant logging truck traffic. Be exceedingly careful the closer you get to town.
This is a true wilderness trail, be prepared for all eventualities, cell service is spotty do not rely on your phone to get you out of trouble.
This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
