The longest trail in our main loop, Trail #11 offers loads of fun. Option to the right just at the start of the trail to hit the Triple Drop Section. Head straight for a technical little rock face roll followed by a short, steep S-turn layered with roots.

The trail finishes with some more technical rocky parts before spitting you out into the open field that leads back to Trail #1 or the opportunity to exit the system. 1070m in length.
Cherry Pie is a "sweet" option loop across from the Trail #7 entrance. Enter CW for a wicked drop with a log jump to the right on the descent.

Cherry Pie continues with a network of turns, switchbacks and drops before a challenging climb back to the ski trail. Try it CCW to really mix it up. 600m in length.
