I would disagree with this being intermediate. It is a trail network that has trails ranging from beginner to expert, one just has to know where to look and follow the maps. Actually the entire island is fantastic. Other areas to check out are forbidden plateau(10mins from Cumberland) doumontnin Nanaimo or Sooke just up the west coast of the island from Victoria/Langford.
That being said this is by far the best mountain biking place I have ever been. From the amazing food, atmosphere to decent accommodations the place is great. And now that the riders pizza has or is becoming a microbrewery, one does not always have to stop at the Cumberland hotel after the ride for a beverage.
