The one. The only. Half Nelson.
We all know it’s an amazing trail, but now Trailforks.com has made it official. They’ve just released their ranking for the best mountain bike trail in the world and Half Nelson is first.
Since 2010, this perfectly engineered, grin-inducing, 3km downhill pump track style trail has been wowing mountain bikers from near and far. It is the definition of flow, and no matter what your ability level, you’re guaranteed to come out with a smile.
But this trail didn’t happen by accident. Ted Tempany and the Dream Wizards have worked hard to get Half Nelson to number one.
From the @dreamwizards Instagram page:
“Truly honoured that Half Nelson is rated #1 among some of the top mountain bike trails in the world. The two months of donated machine time and volunteer tail improvements this year have been well received. My dream for HN is to extend it up much higher and make it even longer. Who wants to help make this a reality?
Meet the man behind this trail and the many others that have come to define mountain biking in Squamish.
