    Farlow Gap. Pilot Rock. Both require significant climbs to get to the top.

    I think the real story is you have been a member since 2011 and this was your first post.

    You can add Bennett Gap after 10/15. Scary steep in spots. But good fun after you get past the life-threatening parts.

    "Old Hoss" at rocky Knob will definitely fit the bill for rocks and small drops.

    He/she who works the trails does so in their own image.

    You haven't hit anything if you don't tear up Boyd Branch.

    I may be a wuss (OK - I am a wuss), but I have more fun on those fast non-technical downhills at Bent Creek than on something like Pilot, where I am worried the whole time that I might kill myself. To each his own.

    Wasn't trying to knock anyone or say what's 'good' - just entering the game of "let's name the least technical trail in BC" section of the thread.

    FWIW, I don't enjoy things like Pilot either. My favorites are happy mediums like the far side of sidehill.

    I seem to recall Kitzuma being incredibly rocky and technical.
