The pictures below are an assortment of the 2 lines that are part of Knob Gobbler. Stunts and a new sideline have been added since I last rode this trail. I'll try my best to describe the combination of the lines we rode down.

The trail starts near the towers and is in my opinion a classic and must do if you ever get out to ride Sumas Mt. The singletrack is absolutely divine, it twists and winds it way through the trees. Steeps and the odd rockface are thrown in for your pleasure. The stunts are all mainly rideable except for a couple which seem a bit sketchy.

One of the best stunts is the log ride over a stream. It's not skinny but don't look down. The guys only rode down the log but decided not to continue down that line. Instead we went back and rode a line that was quite hairy along a ravine. The trail after this had a few stunts but the best part were the switchbacks that ended the trail. Down an embankment and then onto a nice steep to finish the trail off.

I'll redo this description once I figure out which is the real line for Knob Gobbler and the sideline. Sorry until then I hope this will suffice.
