The Natural Line

Steep and Deep in Squamish

There are some very sweet and very steep (mostly) natural trails out of Squamish. David Reid and his six year old son Griffin build the more human-sized but still steep goods while Pat Foster and Jeremy Norris build the really crazy stuff.

Alex Savage sent through this video, the third in his Epic TV series, and noted that his name for the project was “The Natural Line”. It may still be one of the world’s most inspiring trails, as Epic TV titled it, but you’ll have to decide for yourself.







Sources say that stuff is waaay bigger than it looks.

        sorry dude, the first rule about being shown sweet zones is “don’t talk about sweet zones (on the internet)”

        you’re not far off though. keep riding and exploring. when you are ready, the trails will find you ­čśë

        Rode this masterpiece recently. It’s great because I planted the blocks on either side of the trail a decade ago, and now I’m getting to shred the same zones thanks to the hard work of the good people that built it. I think the little doghouse at the top might be a good place to leave offerings for the builders!

  • Sweet lines. Some major commitment there.
