This is the second easiest line at Big White bike park (behind Bumble Bee) and links together 2 trails to give a long and enjoyable ride.


One thing which really stands out on this line is the exceptional vistas which can be enjoyed from it, and the multiple viewpoints at which you can pull over and admire it all from. There are plenty of places to stop, and plenty of reasons to use them! The views across the wild and remote hills in the distance (Mount Tanner is the most prominent) are fabulous, and well worth interrupting your ride for.

The ride itself is bumpy at times, but never technical. It's not quite smooth enough that you can switch off and look at the view without stopping, but there's nothing of any real difficulty. As with most of the Big White trails, there are no roots, and plenty of rocks! In addition, there are some jumps for those who want them, but they're easy to avoid if you'd rather keep your wheels on the ground.

Beyond the rocks and optional jumps, the main difficulties are in negotiating the often-rutted braking zones, and riding smoothly through some occasional tight-ish sections. Even the tight sections aren't technical, but if you're going to do them well and carry a bit of speed then you'll likely need a few runs before you really nail it.

All in all, this is a long, scenic journey, and an ideal way of getting started at Big White.



Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
