Located in Glenrosa/West Bank (Kelowna), this area offers some wicked downhill riding. Expect large man-made features and structures on all the trails; structures vary in ability from advanced to expert. Sweet fast singletrack and loads of options make this an area well suited for the advanced to expert rider. Intermediate riders looking to take it up a notch will find the area great for pushing their limits.
There are three (3) drop-in areas. The first is Builders only, about 1/2 km up the gravel road (Glenrosa Road). The second is 2.5 km up the gravel road and the last is Big Monkey at the 3.5 km mark. All trails are on your right-hand side; they are not obvious so keep your eyes open.
The Builders Only Trail offers a large number of man made structures, varying in ability. A good trail to get warmed up on. The rest of the runs further up the mountain get a little more intense; rating advanced to expert/pro.
Powers Creek boasts the following downhill/freeride trails: Big Money, Crazy Train, Builders Only, Diddler, Stinky Pinky, Master of Slag, Playland, Fat Badge and Glen Canyon.
Area Update (June 9, 2015): 2.5 km of trail in this area is now over grown and not maintained, while 80% of the features are collapsed or collapsing – CHECK ALL STRUCTURES BEFORE YOUR RIDE. Builders Only is still in great shape, with a couple features broken that are well-marked.
