Its a bit of a climb to get to the top, and the directions were confusing as hell, but the downhill is worth it. Super fast and tacky, but not very technical. Would be good for a beginner-intermediate looking for a super fast downhill. Watch the kicker at the end of the trail after the bridge. If you have a crappy front fork don't even think of doing this trail fast, you'd have more fun staying home a punching yourself in the nuts repeatedly.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fortune, Kanata Lakes
