this trail is a legendary FR epic and is only getting better with time like a fine wine! wickedly long and steep and nasty but technically manageable for the more advanced riders. most ramps are better built than before and there is a few gnar log rides. be sure to check out new lower sections...go straight down from powerlines (at the small rock drop) where u will come across a newer than you 8-10 foot rock drop worth eying up (phat work on the trany punchy 8 - ) this is the route down the creek and meets up with barqs. even lower down is work in process...the purse snatcher...sick high log ride entry to a wicked few lines ala punch drunk style...gonna be great gnar finish to a super sick bad mamajama trail... worth all the while and then some! hit it!

Just 1/2 km up the hill on Hwy 3a out of Castlegar from main overpass turn right up Mary creek logging road, from there a steady climb for about 6 km, the trailhead starts off to your right just before a large flat clearing where they burn logging slash in a huge pile.

I must have missed the 10 foot drops. I rode it in the rain and it was pretty snotty. It is not too steep but has a couple steep bits that are pretty nasty, full of roots and rocks and crap. The ramp construction sucks, they are poorly built and dangerous. If you do decide you want to launch off of them stop and check them out first as they are really flimsy and it would really suck to crash cause the ramp fell apart. It could use a detour near the bottom to avoid a big muck hole, (mabey I'll fix that in the spring of 2001) overall though I must say it is a great trail with fast single track, nasty steeps and a few good trickey rock drops. If you are a novice rider don't try this one. IF the ramps weer not built so cheesily I would definately give this one 5 fat tires but I think I will only go with 4.
