Come Slay the JabbaRocky

The Rose Valley trail gnomes have been hard at work punching out a new trail full of switchback fun, a fast flowy descent, and one of the best views in Kelowna.  JabbaRocky is a cross country / all mountain trail that can be accessed from the gate at the dead end of Rosewood in West Kelowna.  Head down the dirt road, past the gate towards the Rose Valley dam (approx 1.4 km). The entrance will be in a small gravel pit on the left side of the road. There should be a few red flags to get you started. The climb is approximately 6km, and crosses the old lake loop trail several times. In all cases keep climbing the uphill switchbacks.  There are exactly a bazillionteen of them.  At the JabbaRocky trail sign turn in and enjoy.

The descent is roughly 3km long, and while there are no stunts on the trail yet, JabbaRockey boasts some of the best rock gardens Kelowna has to offer.

The only split in the trail comes almost at the end, where there is an optional “easy-out” to the left, while the right hand option weaves riders through a rocky boulder field.

As this is a new trail, any help packing it in is much appreciated.  Think you’re up to the task?
