Downes Bowl - Trail, Abbotsford, British Columbia

Downes Bowl - Trail, Abbotsford, British Columbia

DESCRIPTION

The trail is fairly technical, lots of roots, and logs. If you stay on the main pathway, it is either dirt or gravel. if you want more fun, follow some of the shoots of singletrack, and you will be challenged with every imaginable technical difficulty. Except, there are not very many steep descents. Watch for mud, especially during the sping and fall.

Don't waste your time riding in downes bowl you'll end having to bike n' hike back up. There is a little bit of jumps somewhere in there but they kind of suck anyways so it is not worth biking their. When my friend and I decided to check it out we were dissapointed becuase we ended up almost getting lost and having to push are bikes all the way back up.

Customer Service

This trail is definitely cool. There are offshoots of the main trail for every level of difficulty, and this is a perfect place to practice any sort of riding you want. I would recommend this trail to everyone, as it has great variety and is convenient to get to.

HAVE RIDDEN THIS TRAIL MANY TIMES AND ITS NOT AS TECHNICAL AS THEY SAY. MOSTLY JUST FLAT AND FAST WITH ONE AREA THAT SEEMS LIKE A BMX PARK.

As an experienced rider I scoped out the Bowl to see how fitting it would be for my kids (& me). Don't forget it's a community park in a bowl. For the most part it's a network of paths which roll downward,dotted with bridges through and around the marsh. The single track, for the most part, either joins paths or dead ends. They are mostly short distance climbs and descents. There is very little technical XC and only one creek crossing. There is a BMX bowl on the way down to the bottom and a plank bridge over a windfall. Cleaning the trails produced satisfaction but no thrills. The trails and paths are unmarked. Downes Bowl is appropriate for beginners looking improve their climbing skills and novices out for a low stress burn.

Customer Service

Rode it today for first time. No single recommended route as it would be confusing without names for the paths.

This is agreat area for new riders or riders that are getting back into the sport and want to shake off the cobwebs. That being said there are some decent sections of single track if you take the time to explore the side trails off the main trails. If you only have an hour or so to go for a ride it is a great place to go. I would not make the trip here from outside of Abbotsford to ride.
