Description

This trail is a groomed singletrack descent with banked corners and moderate jumps. Rideers can access Vertigo from the Brookside Drive parking area, Eagle Ridge Park, or from Eagle Crest Trail. Vertigo Downhill and Levitate Downhill follow the same general direction and start and end in the same location.

Levitate is a double black DH and Vertigo is a blue DH. At one point, during the first section, the two trails merge for a time and if a riders finds themselves wanting something more challenging they can switch to Levitate Downhill. The trail is fast and will give any beginner or intermediate a rush. The downhill is categorized as a blue, but could be navigated by a rider whose comfort level is on green-blue.

The jumps are moderate and do not require riders to get airborne. This is a south-facing trail and is the first to warm up during the chilly season and is the first to dry out after a rain.

A fast berm. Taken at full speed, these will put you nearly horizontal.
