A perfect beginner XC trail. Beautiful forest trail, small roots, few rocks, small features, nearly all with ride-around options.

(Difficulty rating note: Trail ranks "Green" for Squamish and Alice Lake area. IMBA Rating would be "Blue" for you out-of-towners).

Up: A smooth, steady, and serene XC connector from the highway up to the Alice Lake road, suitable for hard tail/XC/AM. (Roots & sloppy sections appear readily in wet seasons/sustained rainy days - marked change in difficulty for new riders).

Down: An extra-light and sparse pump track feel when riding down (but watch for other riders/walkers/climbers!). A few small bridges (2' wide), and number of optional low-altitude (6"-12") skinnies, all with ride-arounds, and a handful of small berms.
Decline is perfect to keep your momentum at a reasonable pace, requires little pedaling or braking.

Watch for climbers at the big boulder!

Big tree down about 100 yards in from Alice Lake end. Tough to get around given the length of the tree. Will need a decent chainsaw to fix up.

 A much more fun ride if you start this from the Alice Lake end.

 A fun ride to go on almost flat downhill. Don't expect to much speed. The forest trail has lots of rocks and small river bridges. Nice fun trail going either direction. I like it uphill to get to some other trails and on the way back for some easy flow in the beautiful woods.
