NEW BIKE TRAIL: "The Mantle". Now Open.
Built by acclaimed trail builder Cam Sorensen and team, this new addition to the Predator Trail network requires a tremendous amount of cardio to gain the top. Along with your fitness it has some tight climbing corners and a technical climb that will get the best of us. The descent has some of the longest rock slabs offered in the Okanagan. These also are not suitable to walk down with your bike and there is NO easy way down. Link that together with a few drops, rock spines, and a second climb in the middle of the trail.
