    I've ridden them after riding DH - they are not worth your time and not very good. They do a weekly race series on the northern loop which is really rough across a lot of ski hill grass without any flow, there are some technical climbs on the loop but nothing worth experiencing. Not worth the hassle.

    rode there a couple of years ago and they were poorly marked.
    wasn't sure if we were on the trails half the time and kept ending up on downhill sections.
    haven't been back since.

    Haven't done all of them but what I did do was pretty boring. If you're in the area anyway, 3 Stage and Kolapore are way better options.

    I ride dh at blue regularly with singlesprocket. The xc trails are popular for new riders and tourists on rental bikes from the village. They are often accompanied by guides/instructors. Typically I see families or groups of friends riding the xc trails which run across the top of blue.

    These riders enjoy watching the downhillers, snapping pics and they often ask us questions about mountain biking.

    Ill echo everyones comments. They do have xc trails, but your better off riding 3stage which isn't far from the hill. Your best to ride with someone who knows where there going however, as its pretty easy to get turned around in there.

    The only xc ride that I kinda enjoy at Blue is "The grind". You pretty much ride up the south side of the hill then back down Embryo or Haloe. Great warmup/traing before riding DH for the day.

    I donít mind answering questions asked by these new riders on the trail or in the village. It helps generate interests and builds the cycling community. Being a cycling ambassador is a very positive thing to do.

    Don't waste your time on the commercial trails but the Bruce Trail that runs along the top of the ski hills is free and bike legal for the most part. Challenging in parts.

    Park and drop your bike at the end of Swiss Meadows Road (at the top of Scenic Caves Road)...
