Pseudo-Tsuga Loop Map

Pseudo-Tsuga is a top-tier flow trail that has held up exceedingly well to its fame and subsequent traffic over the years. This berm-filled descent offers a few small jumps, but it's definitely not as jump-focused as nearby Half Nelson. Instead, the trail experience here provides high-speed swoop and flow through the forest that's guaranteed to put a grin on your face.


The trail tread consists of a consistent dirt tread that is superbly packed and manicured to provide a consistent, optimal ride experience throughout. In places where the trail passes over low ground, the tread has been elevated with fill dirt to keep it out of the wet and keep the track consistent throughout the entire ride. It's truly an incredible feat of engineering and a work of art.

This trail is such an absolute gem, and it's kind of incredible to think that Squamish has many other trails of similar quality to Pseudo-Tsuga just scattered across its forested mountainsides. The quality and caliber of this trail are higher than you'll find in most bike parks, and it's just out here, hidden in the heart of Squamish's expansive trail system.

The route shown here is a short loop that climbs to the top of Pseudo-Tsuga and then descends this iconic flow trail back to the trailhead. Of course, there are numerous ways to build a longer route with this trail, including an epic loop or shuttle with Meadow of the Grizzly, or by combining it with the nearby ultra-famous Half Nelson. Fred -> Tinder -> Your Mom is another nearby route that could create a double-loop option. The sky is the limit when you're riding in Squamish!



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.
