Summary:
This place has it all...starts off with serious drops and a wicked downhill, little drops follow. ladders, log rides and the teeter-totter make for interesting events. The guys are building another wicked drop, which should be ready in a little while. (Trees keep the place pretty sheltered, so the snow stays out.) Starting to look like some of the BC/Ont trails. We just shot a vid here, and at the old KCA playground (Dirt Jumps) it's pretty sweet stuff...gotta love this town!

Recommended Route:
Coming through downtown Kentville, go towards Memorial Park. When you get to the park's main entrance, turn left and go up the hill on the paved road. Keep to the left and drive straigh through the gate up into the public trail. When you get to the Bench (you'll know it when you see it, it's the only place you can turn around) park your vehicle. Go down the trail on the left, first drop is right there and it's huge.

Recommended Route:
When coming in from exit 13, turn right towards town, this will bring you down to main street, turn left since the town is one way turn right then take the first left again, stay in the Right lane go straight through the lights, after passing the church turn right go straight, then there will be Memorial Park just past the enterence to the Ball Field you will see a paved rode on the left, go up this rode and your there.

Reviewed by: Derrick , from Kentville, Nova Scotia

Summary:
This is another great trail in the valley. Very technical. REaL steep drops and hard steep ass climbs. You can catch some heavy speed but watch the trees and the sharp hair-pin turns at the end of a long decent. The best part about the gorge is you always come out muddy. This place stays wet nearly all year. Enjoy!

Recommended Route:
Just go and play around. But don't go just before dark if its your first time. All the trails are tree covered so it get dark very fast and can be very easy to get lost.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cape Split, if your in the valley you must ride the split!
