This trail is located just north of Victoria. Adjacent to the Hartland Landfill is one of the island's premier trail networks. It has it all, from tender to terminal. The trails act like an aggression thermometer. As you ride through the system, make a comparison of the visual character of the trails at each junction, and then go for it. At many junctions, one trail may be visibly more difficult; this typical contrast helps to make decisions easier. When you feel aggressive, the choice is obvious. When you feel more tentative, there are other, less stressful options. Generally, the lower trails are easy, with the intermediate trails taking a higher line and the expert trails working their way to the summit lines. The northwest section of trails is strictly for expert riders.

Map was alright. It would be nice if the map was up to date and if it told you the difficulty and direction. The trails were alright I was expecting better being the Victoria area and all but just didn't come close to Mount Tzouhalem.
