“The showcase downhill trail with jumps, berms rollers and a wooden feature or two.”
— Ed Parrot
This machine-built, hand-groomed trail is a spectacular downhill experience. Aside from 2-3 short steep sections, it's all flowing berms, rollers and table tops. It has a few rock and wooden features for expert riders, all of which have bypasses for the less brave among us.
Most of the trails at Camden Snowbowl are fairly rugged, with plenty of rocks and roots. Dreadnought is a notable exception, constructed with the feel of a lift-accessed park in mind. To get to the start, you have to either tackle a 20-30 minute rooty and windy climb, or show up on one of the lift access days sprinkled throughout the summer. The trailhead is adjacent to the top of the lift.
Make sure to bring both your brakes and your adrenaline - this trail is not to be missed for any mountain biker who enjoys the downhill experience.
