Riddler - Trail, Kelowna, British Columbia

Riddler - Trail, Kelowna, British Columbia

DESCRIPTION

I bit of a climb to it but well worth it. It is all log rides. Some about 10-12 feet high. A tetter totter, tripple tetter totter on a log ride and a suspension bridge. Lots more. A must ride because it is often harder to walk than it is to ride.

its a great trail to get on your balancing game. If you haven't got any balance you won't enjoy the trail... This is a must for the technical gurus that want to strut there stuff.. (cause I am definately not one)... Lots of logs to ride and a wicked suspension bridge... you have to see it to understand..

Lots of pretty tough log rides. Cleaning this trail in one shot is very hard to do. Has flow if you can ride all the logs but is quite choppy if you can't. The 100+ft. suspension bridge has to be seen. Not too hard but a good rush. Probably a good idea to put on some flat pedals for the high stuff cuz it is thin.

Customer Service

Ask around. Too hard to explain here.

IF YOU LOVE LOG RIDES YOU WILL LOVE THIS TRAIL.THIS IS MY FAVORITE TRAIL THAT I HAVE EVER RIDDEN.IT IS STUNT AFTER STUNT AFTER STUNT-ALTHOUGH VERY DIFFICULT TO FLOW.TYPICAL OF KELOWNA TRAIL BUILDERS-VERY WELL BUILT AS USUAL.THE SUSPENSION BRIDGE IS AWESOME AS JOHNNY CASINO SAID A VERY GOOD RUSH.THE BEST STUNT ON THE TRAIL IS THE DISCOMBOBULATOR,3 TEETER-TOTTERS ATTACHED TOGETHER ON A LOG-REALLY SATISFYING WHEN YOU FLOW THIS ONE. "ITS ALL GOOD"

Logs, Logs, Logs. This trail is not for the balancely challenged. If you can't ride logs, don't like logs, or don't want to learn to ride logs, don't bother climbing up to the Riddler. This, in conjuction with Ho/Moe is my favourite ride in Kelowna (and rivals Boogeyman for my favourite ride overall). The acomplishment you feel when you've ridden all the logs on this trail is wicked. The Discombobulator is awesome, and the rush you get once you've ridden it for the first time is phenomenal.

The Riddler also hails the most unique stunt I've ever ridden, a super long suspension bridge. I don't even want to imagine the hours that went into building. It gives you a great break in between logs, it's nice and easy to ride, but still makes your stomach drop when you ride it.

Kudos to the builders of the Riddler. I'll be back to ride it many more times.

Customer Service

Take the Riddler, then Ho and finish off with Moe.

The riddle is: What has great single track well put together log rides,nice transition between logs and jumps? ANS: Any where but here.
Come on ,who ever built this thing should go back to playing with tinker toys until you know what your doing. Until then, thumbs down.
Helpfull hint for the builders, travel around ,check out other tech trails.

Wow. I'm not pro at all, but I have trails from Saskatchewan to North Shore to Nelson and the Riddlers(1,2,3) are if not the best, damn close. Starts with a 40' log and just gets better from there. Good luck with "discombobulator" (triple teeter on a log). There is also a teeter on a teeter (pretty tough at first) of course you can't forget the HUGE suspension bridge (ever been to Capilano?) it's got some very funky movin and shakin going on under your wheels (one person on the bridge at a time) scary as hell but tottally doable (just keep your eyes on the road). This trail is awesome and like someone said already follow it up with Ho and Moe (see if you can find "Fairlane" while you're up there.) for an epic ride. If you can clean these trails, you are god.
I shold also mention that is almost always a ride around option on Ho and Moe for the timid, but often not Riddler, you may end up carrying your bike down or up some logs.
PS
the susp bridge is easier to ride than it is to walk

Customer Service

Up the Lost Lake trail. Past the "lake". Ask someone out there

nice trail, needs some work. my favorite trail on crawford, nothing else there compares to the technical riding on the riddler, cleaning everything on the riddler then following it up with some ho/moe/plankenstein is my fav local ride..logs logs and more logs to some nice jumps, the new sixpack kicks asss..

Customer Service

drop in.. or drive to the big dirt road and climb up....drop in.

this trail is no longer i use i just rode it today nov 22 2002 and most of the stunts have been removed the to sectoin still has a few nearly broken down log rides but not worth riding looks like it my have been a nice trail before parks tore it down. most of the trail building is being done in the shoot lake area so some of the trails are geting run down but the ones below can be fun depending on your riding level
