Off camber, real rooty, if it is wet you'll really enjoy yourself if your a masochist. Run low pressure for traction, but watch out for pinch flats. If you stay on it past another paved trail(stay right on the valley wall) It finishes with a technical downhill.

Summary:
Well well well. Hey boys gotta challenge for ya. Not to pitchy- Not to rooty- Not to techy okay, got, it, easy right. I've been doing it with no breaks... Ya ya still never cleaned it miso... once u...a second. All the other times just a lot of hurt. But i'm I'm telling you, are you afraid? Fine. Only last about 35 sec's, are yu ready? What you got to loose?.

Recommended Route:
Going east on 95 ave past 142St 142st that's right. Keep going... road will turn right... keep going take your time, get ready. Look to your right, see the big houses, ya, see the one with the raised brick and fountain lawn. {it always has a animal control van with someone inside it to the right of the house} To your left is the valley, some grass before trees, The bench. Go to the bench. THERE is the Opening. Hooooo....

Summary:
Fun trail. Lots of roots(shitty when wet)awwww get over it. A couple of decent 3-4 footer drops and some gaps if you look for them. Some good short downhills.

Recommended Route:
Can't miss it. south-east of Stony Plain Rd. and 149St. Just off paved trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you like rugged trails just go anywhere in the Edmonton River Valley and look around. Unfortunately there are not any longer downhills.(please let me know if you know of any good ones)
