Starting in the Industrial Park at the Pemberton Distillery, ride the Friendship trail out to the gravel pit and climb the Mackenzie FSR to the start to Nimby.
1. MAX PAINS / BACK PAINS
After climbing all the single track you can handle, enjoy one of Pemberton's longest, fastest, and flowy-est descents down sweet corners, berms, and dirt.
2. NO ERR
Boot out towards Mosquito Lake on the FSRs and roads, while chatting with you buddies about how awesome the first stage way. Pass the Aid Station at the bottom of the No Err/ Econoline climb for a pick-me-up. Once you hit No Err, it's rock rolls galore.
3. ECONOLINE / DARK FOREST
Head back up the hill for Econoline — a Pemberton classic with just the right grade to either bust your lungs ripping hard or contentedly cruise along.
4. CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC
Take the quick transition across the creek, and catch your breath while staring at a mind-blowing view of Mt. Currie. Enjoy your final rip down the fun corners and little booters of Crosstown Traffic. We're taking the hard left down the connector trail down to the FSR (see course notes in Trailforks), so dial in those corners (and jumps!).
That's the course, folks!
