Trailhead elevation is around 3700 ft ends at 1400 ft extreme drops, slippery chutes (surf zones)over moss covered rocks & ledges, lots of downhill logs and wheel swallowing holes, several great wheelie drops over rock bluffs & huge boulders 4-10ft high with downhill landings. Pretty sick riding!!!

Summary:
this trail is a legendary FR epic and is only getting better with time like a fine wine! wickedly long and steep and nasty but technically manageable for the more advanced riders. most ramps are better built than before and there is a few gnar log rides.

be sure to check out new lower sections...go straight down from powerlines (at the small rock drop) where u will come across a newer than you 8-10 foot rock drop worth eying up (phat work on the trany punchy 8 - ) this is the route down the creek and meets up with barqs. even lower down is work in process...the purse snatcher...sick high log ride entry to a wicked few lines ala punch drunk style...gonna be great gnar finish to a super sick bad mamajama trail...

worth all the while and then some! hit it!

Recommended Route:
bros at boomtown can hook u up...if ur lucky

Other recommended trails in the same area:
twinkle toes (go right @ top of trail)

Summary:
I must have missed the 10 foot drops. I rode it in the rain and it was pretty snotty. It is not too steep but has a couple steep bits that are pretty nasty, full of roots and rocks and crap. The ramp construction sucks, they are poorly built and dangerous. If you do decide you want to launch off of them stop and check them out first as they are really flimsy and it would really suck to crash cause the ramp fell apart. It could use a detour near the bottom to avoid a big muck hole, (mabey I'll fix that in the spring of 2001) overall though I must say it is a great trail with fast single track, nasty steeps and a few good trickey rock drops. If you are a novice rider don't try this one. IF the ramps weer not built so cheesily I would definately give this one 5 fat tires but I think I will only go with 4.

Recommended Route:
as per xrider's description

Summary:
good trail the best around castlegar lots of steep sections I'm not sure where the "10 foot" drop is the biggest on the trail is about 2 or 3 feet. A really fun steep trail.

Summary:
lots of sick drops and decents,some really steep turns and sketchy baby head rides
not that hard to ride after you've riden it more than 10 times and know little rock

Recommended Route:
straight down over everything!
once you reach the loggin road DONT GO STRAIGHT ACROSS ride up hill untill you find another trail going down to the left its MUCH better you totally bypass the creek

Other recommended trails in the same area:
go off at merry creek and ride Snails"bike trail off of merry creek"ride down this and then go left at the fire road and go through the dudes field to the powerlines and you can link up to dirkdigler halfway down
