Description

Williams Lake is home to one of the most expansive trail systems in Central BC, but of all the networks here, Fox Mountain is the most famous.

On Fox Mountain, you'll find a number of well-known lines, but Aflow Daddy is the mega classic. This old-school flow trail descent now begins on a section of a modern flow trail known as Loose Moose.

Loose Moose was professionally machine built by Jeremy Stowards and Wylie Easton of New Path Forestry, Ltd., and was recently completed in the spring of 2022.

The top section begins with a few fantastic bridges, swoopy berms, and tabletop jumps before you peel off onto Aflow. The builders of Aflow didn't have massive machines to move a ton of dirt around, so the flow here utilizes the natural features of the mountainside.

You'll find plenty of low berms to help keep your speed high, gap jumps, kickers, and a few drops. The flowiest sections are found where the trail drops into natural gullies, with swooping turns flying up and down the sides of the gully.

These sections are an absolute riot and have helped Aflow remain a popular trail for years! One other standout section is a series of tight back-to-back berms that really force you to pump your way around them to maintain your momentum and stay out of the soupy puddles that inevitably lie in the bottoms of the turns. Aflow can be ridden as a loop or ripped as a quick shuttle, as mapped here.

For the shuttle option, the bottom of the route drops out into the TDC trail, which sidehills along a narrow singletrack before dropping steeply down to the visitors' center.

Take care on this section and watch for uphill traffic, most notably hikers.
