It’s a 15 k.m. enduro-style, machine built trail designed for intermediate to advanced riders with a never ending series of fun flowy hips, jumps and berms all the way down to the village base.

In addition to Fifty Six Twenty, mountain bikers can also ride Greely Trail, an out and back intermediate multi-use trail with minimal elevation gain.
