OK, it's the staging area for the old Sandilands race course, or what used to be the staging area after it was destroyed by a massive forest fire that devastated a large section of the Sandilands Provincial Forest two years ago this month. A sorry sight. I wouldn't even have realized where we were if Gordo hadn't pointed it out...
We rode some of the old trail last week and the first technical section (run counter clockwise) is still intact (virtually unburned) including several of the deep gullys. That was great to see, and several of the Body-driven guys are already planning and cutting a new course. Who knows, might be even better than the old one! There's a good chunk of elevation to utilize.
