Lots of fun stuff, ups and downs. A great hiking trail section that goes along the ocean with a spectacular view. Some really technical singletrack along this. There are also some great drop-offs and short but steep downhill sections.

Summary:
This Trail is a very swell trail. There are a lot of different trails up there. There is the gut. That is the on that starts off with a tiny shore which is extremly easy to do. There is one drop and it's only like 3-4 feet. There's two parts which are actually alright. One is by the small drop and then your able to turn left or right. If you go left there is a ride down which is very muddy but it's pretty easy but if you go right before this , there's a steep ride down that is about 15ft long but it's pretty Ace. The other partwhich is pretty good is the part which comes on the main trail it's a rockface but it's great.
Another trail that I always ride is the trail when you at the top you go right. First there's a shore straight ahead but it's pretty easy. The best way is to go right then theres a ride down which is really fun and after the ride down there's a 9-10 ft drop. and it's pretty good

Recommended Route:
Go up by the Off-road truck trails

Summary:
great trail but a little short, probably no longer than 5km but you can switch it up and do different loops to make up for it. the single track section behind the RCMP building is great with technical sections and new ladder bridges and drops being added continuosly. there are also some crazy downhill sections above DFO that i would pay admission to see someone ride. very steep, covered with roots and craggy rocks and trees. pretty close to dirt jumping track below DFO too if you like that.

Recommended Route:
behind DFO building or RCMP, either way is fine. lots of choices of what kind of trail you want. i didn't find it hard to get around and was never shown by anyone so i don't think you'll get lost if you stick to the trails that look used.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
pippy park, signal hill
