Description: Half Nelson is perhaps the most famous and most ridden trail in Squamish. For this reason alone it is a must do ride when you visit town. Flow and as much speed as you want are the menu items on this iconic trail. The climb up is not too steep and totally rideable; most people end up pedaling right back up and doing a second lap. Definitely plans on hitting this trail on your riding trip to Squamish! Do it… you know you want to. As a bonus we included Another Man’s Gold in this loop. This is an under ridden extension that might just be even more fun than Half Nelson itself!
