Trail Difficulty: Intermediate / Difficult. NOT FOR BEGINNERS OR UNEXPERIMENTED MOUNTAIN BIKERS. This is not a guided tour but if you need us to ride with you to show you the way let us know in advance.
What to bring with you:
There is no water on the trail so you need to carry what you will need for the day along with food to fuel the body for an extended period of riding. This is a trail for cross country to enduro bikes, and fatbikes have extra fun. It is wise to run tubeless because every bush has thorns. Put fresh sealant in your tires and carry extra tubes as well. Aside from the regular tools and parts you usually carry, pack a spare derailleur hanger, a cable, express chain link. Bring a FRS radio.
What to wear:
Since every bush has thorns and they are all over the edge of the trail, we recommend long sleeves, knee and elbow pads to protect you in case of contact. Be ready for hot, cold or wet conditions. You will dress according to weather conditions at the trail head.
