The Super D (or whatever name) Trail was constructed in 2011 and 2012 with sections falling into disrepair soon after due to notorious "cultural-study" snares. Repairs came in late 2014 and now it is open and rideable. See how it fits into the mix on our industry-leading MERA Map. Expect several dirt mounds and downhill challenges with a new access point at the top of the Caffeine (or whatever name) Trail which serves as a good climb to make a loop of it. Finish off the descent with the Cougar (or whatever) Trail then Hotshot (or whatever). It ends up being quite a long ride of corner-filled descending by the end.

Excavator Work on Uppermost Section of New Super D Trail Nearing Completion


Thanks to Bart Barlow and the Blue Mountain Singletrack Trails Club, the heavy work on the very top is only a few hundred yards from completion of the excavator-work phase. It can now be ridden from the official start at the top, which offers a magnificent view of the valley. An initial map of the trail can be seen here. Read more

Excavators Making Good Work of New Super D Trail at MERA

Bart and Lannce are doing a fantastic job directing the excavators high on Mt. Emily for the construction of the new downhill trail at the Mount Emily Recreation Area. Significant work has been done over the weekend and will conclude in the next couple days, just in time for winter to close in to harden up the trails for their opening next spring. See the tracks of the current constructed trail.

Trail Work Update for MERA

Construction is underway on the Super D trail for downhill mountain biking. Trail work on Tuesday evenings is focused on people digging out the trail with hand tools on the steepest sections. The remainder of the trail will be constructed using an excavator rented by the Blue Mountain Singletrack Trails Club. Super D is a downhill trail that will start at the rock cliff overlook where Mt. Emily Road tops out. Read more
