“Berms, rocky descents, punchy climbs... a little bit of everything.”
— Trevor Miller
After getting your legs under you a bit with the Whale Tail section of Boundary Trail
, you'll be thrown (almost literally) into Strangler. It start with a hugely built up berm that fools you into thinking you are going to hit some nice flowy singletrack. You soon realize that the members of HAFTA have no idea what flow is and you are bombarded with punchy, rocky climbs, followed by some eye-popping rocky descents.
Like most of the trails at Agreement Forest
, Strangler is well-built and incorporates seemingly every rock in the area into a terrifically thought out, exceptionally fun, and challenging trail.
