This is the main Whopper Dropper trail to the power lines. Please stay on the main trail, as there are a number of cheater lines/braids on the granite sections.

This portion is somewhat beginner friendly, but there are a number of challenging technical sections here - climbs, drops and rock gardens.

This section is an all-year trail, but transitions to sections which should be avoided when it's wet.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

 Much of this trail, and of the Whopper Dropper trail network itself has been destroyed to make way for an expansion of the Bayers Lake Business Park. Please use caution if you proceed through this area.
