Review: Clearwater is one of my favorite places to mountain bike. The trails have something for almost any skill level rider The technical features are challenging and the landscape never disappoints. Rocks, roots, damp forest, sand, drops, jumps and proper ripping flow. If Clearwater doesn't make your mountain bike smile, well then you shoukd scrap it and take up basket weaving! I will never be on the Southcoast without a visit. Thank you for such fun times and delicious food and drinks!
