Description

This trail is singletrack with nice flow - it's better for climbing than Zoom. The riding is good in either direction. There are some tight turns and a few boggy spots but otherwise it's a great ripper.

Broken Spade has been rerouted and no longer intersects with Leland Creek Road. The upper end now begins at the upper end of Zoom at the Zoom - Iko Trail intersection.

Being turned into more of a dh run. Looks fun but slow and tight. May cause issues for uphill access. Wonderful dense forest.
