Summary:
its a pretty well evened trail lots of big huks lots of skinnys called compressed air and there is some chutes, ladder bridges, it is a good trail not very technical, not a speed trail cuz everystunt ur gonna wanna slow down and look at it first cuz fagets break them cuz they dont know how to ride they break the lips on the huks and djs, but its alllgood now, but there is some awesome huk action, the nobbie gobblers 12 feet, after compressed air, theres a 15 foot drop with a pretty smooth landing, seen kids hit it on gts, but overall do it up, best ride here,

Reviewed by: well well well , from thekootenay,bc

Summary:
very good trail; lots of cool rock bluffs that the trail winds through and off of; lots of high bridges and lots of drops (average is about 8 feet); End of the trail is so good(Very High Skinny that flows into a ton of launches that ends with a ladder to ladder gap and then a solid ten foot drop, to a hard right to a sweet eight footer to beauty tranny, and then a drop into a gravel pit, So good)Nice work from the Castlegar boys, defineately a must do if you are in Rossland or Nelson; Maybe avoid in the rain since all structures are made from finished wood that is mad sketchy when wet.

Recommended Route:
directions at top as good as you will need

Other recommended trails in the same area:
maybe dirt diggler except that Dr. claw has a better fall line; the diggler goes down alot of flowing creek beds/gullys so not the best line
