Super steep, loose, rocky, and narrow. Some very technical sections like dropping into the right while turning left. I have a permanant scar on my chin from this section.

Trail Directions
Off the beaten path. If you get off the lift and head over to the westridge race course, insted of dropping down to the right into the course steer left (slightly up hill: no pedaling required) There is an opening to a fire road. Take the fire road through the water channel and keep going till you find the big rock on the right. It drops into a bowl and back up. Keep following the trail. It will split into three. It's the really steep one with the Danger signs everywhere.

Summary:
i road this trail, i dont see the big deal. i took it no problim on my long travle XC bike. there was one small 20 foot section i had to walk, the only good line i saw through this section required at least 6 or 7 inches of travle. otherwize i thought BB was pretty tame. i can see why there is a pantie tree 1/2 way up the chair lift. i had a blast there all the trails. cant wait to go back

Recommended Route:
head north to whistler

Summary:
You know what they say about cockroaches? Where you see one, there are more. Keep searching and building, and only show those you ride with. That way we can all keep riding illegal trails. The sweetest fruit is forbidden fruit.

Recommended Route:
What trail? Poacher is right, you must be cautious about your spray.
