“A great trail that artfully blends tech into flow.”
— Eric Ashley
Angry Midget is a Squamish favorite and true crowd pleaser. That's probably why the entrance is decorated with various lawn ornaments and knick-knacks.
This super-fun, technical trail starts out steep as it drops through the trees. There aren't too many roots or rocks early on, but steeper plunges will still focus your attention and exercise your brakes. The well balanced tech allows the trail to roll away beneath your tires as riders descend to cross over Half Nelson
. This sizable bridge, and the rest of the wood features, can all be rolled.
This second half of Angry Midget opens up the throttle, but there are still some obstacles spread about. The result is a great blend of monster trucking and nimble line choices. The final obstacle is a large boulder just above the road. You can either take the inside, or rally the high line, or thread the middle. The last option has the potential for being the smoothest, but all options can be pretty slippery when it's wet - just make sure not to lose your front wheel in the crack.
