Jim-Jam is a fun and playful trail, best descended down from Mosquito Lake to Reid Road. Located in the Mosquito Lake Area, this is an intermediate x-country ride packed with well bermed corners, small rocks and roots creating natural poppers to air. The trail winds, twists and turns down the gradually descending route. Jim-Jam is the main artery in the northern section of Mosquito Lake, to which several shorter trails connect to, cross, or lead from.

While descending Jim-Jam you’ll come across remnants of a few old Technical Trail Features (TTFs) which have all been pushed off to the side or have rotted away. You’ll also notice some huge TTFs to the left of the trail, all in good standing. These are a part of the Battery Park trail, an expert/pro jump line. A large creek gap exists near the end of the trail, referred to as Charlie’s Choice. The gap is not recommended and is easily bypassed via a wooden bridge located to the left of the feature. Jim-Jam is a lot of fun, offering some great flow and is a good intermediate trail option for those new to riding in Pemberton.
