    New Trail in Gold Canyon

    New Trail Name PHANTOM, this trail is an expert trail only Black Diamond, there is some XC along with a lot of Tech sections. This trail is 1.5 miles long and ties into Kiki and Secret under Snowbird.
    I designed this trail with no easy way around the tech sections, if you cant do it then walk.
    Slow climb and fast downhill sections with a lot of rock sections.
    At the end of the trail has 5 rock formation section within 50' or closer to each other.
    Have fun but take it easy the first time.
    Signage will be installed next weekend.

    Well done K!! I rode it on Friday. Yet another fantastic addition to the network with classic Gold Canyon design. As stated, this is NOT a beginner trail. I thought it felt like a combo of Jodi's Dream & the Tech Loop. Trail is loaded on Trailforks.

    THANKS!
    It will really make the East end of GC a 'go to' area.
    Frost here in BC last night, so will be pointing the Jeep, and Transition bikes, SOUTH Nov 1. We'll have to make the informal pking at the East end (4 miles from Peralta School. turn left) and keep left) better; and that will take a bit of pressure off Cloudview and ApacheLand
    To build that trail in the heat of summer is fantastic.
    You ARE the man!
    Cheers.

    Congrats on completing Phantom! The Mrs. & I enjoyed your sneak peek last month. Can't wait to ride it.
    The only trace I leave behind is tire marks.
