True Value is an intermediate downhill run located on Mount 7. The run is fast and fun, ending with a roller coaster ride down a banked gully – Snake Hill. There are a couple of Technical Trail Features (TTFs), but all offer ride around options. For the most part, this is the easiest run on the mountain. A good challenge for the intermediate rider, but not recommended for a beginner. A few short steep sections are found at the beginning of this run, but it does mellow out after the first few hundred metres. Looking at the map, you’ll note that several of the south descending trails connect up with True Value, as this is the main artery ending at the base of Mount 7 across from the dirt jumps.

Also referred to as the 3KM, the trailhead for True Value is located 3 km up the Bowle-Evans Dr. access road. Due to it’s low elevation; True Value is typically the first trail to thaw out in the spring.
