Mexican Jumping Bean - Trail, Sunshine Coast, British Columbia

Mexican Jumping Bean - Trail, Sunshine Coast, British Columbia

DESCRIPTION

The demands of the Bean changes through the season. In early spring, after the melt, it's skill level varies between moderate and deadly. Through the summer into the fall it's skill level varies between moderate and difficult. It is a challenging and fast XC ride with lots of corners, creek bed and descents. Only one minor climb you can pretty well coast up if you let her rip going down before it. The entire trail lies under the forest's canopy which makes it nice and cool on a hot summer day. Mid summer, with the lines well defined, you can really burn from top to bottom limited only by your lungs and legs, not mention focus and concentration. The trail comes out on Clack Creek Forest Service Road. Turn uphill to get to the Three Steps. Turn downhill and fork east (left) to get to the Brodie "B" and the B&K. At the "T" intersection, that's the B&K, go down (south) to return to the power lines.

FANTASTIC RIDE. Don't be discouraged by the first few hundred meters of the trail off the logging road, as it seems to be rarely ridden and can be quite rough. This is an amazing ride though, through miles of remote forest trails and is well worth the climb up B&K logging road.

This is not a trail. There is an entrance into the woods, and then you have to stop every 10 feet to go around an obsticle. If you like to ride down creek beds with ferns, trees, sticks and other odds and ends then this would be a fun time. If you like single track, double track, or a track period this is not the ride for you. Personally I like a trail that has some flow and some twists and turns, this trail had none of those. Basically it was a long ride up, and a bad ride down. There are so many other nice trails in the area, do yourself a favour and visit them.

Awsome DH course. No real drops or jumps (despite the name)and everything is ridable. The first bit sucks royaly but after you drop down onto the first bit of double track it is sweet!
If you can, try to convince you to shuttle you up there a couple of times (unless you like climbing some 3400 feet on a DH bike) because this is one of those trails that gets better every time.

Customer Service

Just ride it over and over if you can. At the bottom, you may want to go along the road and turn onto the trail at your right (the Brodie trail) this will take you right to the bottom.
