Description

This trail offers a very technical and fast alternative final descent, which you can access two-thirds of the way into Fast Wood.

Follow and enjoy the route of Fast Wood until the trail offers this optional alternative.

Once on this trail, you can expect rough and rocky terrain, which is much more technical than that experienced on Fast Wood.

Bellev'hard Bottom traverses through lush green pastures until it finds the treeline and meanders its way through dense forest. The views on the way down, if you get the chance to look up, are beautiful.

You'll get the chance to try some pretty severe man-made gap jumps and drops—they're guaranteed to test your skills! Or, you can take the optional ride-arounds to avoid the difficult features. Along the way, there are also natural trail features to test your skills.

This trail is steep in places, and will satisfy even the most seasoned riders.

The park lifts are open from the end of June to the end of August.
