Well built DH style trail with optional ride arounds for all bigger features. Very fast, technical trail with great flow. Two larger drops with jumps directly after each, good rock descents, and technical corners. In my opinion it is one of the best DH style trails in the Victoria region.

Access Info

Use the Zig Zag push up trail off of the Sooke Mountain Park Rd. Its a moderately long hike up, steep, but it is worth it.
