Time Killer is a DH race practice course.

Natural with few ladders and a 80foot bridge takes you into the canopy . Down down down.

A mtn bikers small log cabin complete with ladders over top to drop you into the seating area for a break in the ride.

Flowing with fast lines and a couple of tough gaps as well as a few jump spots where you either jump or set your bike over. This is not a begginers course.

Big Bikes rule here

A natural flowing, with some big berms and a rock which depending on your expertise you can go big or not.

Freeway Bob is a fast section where you can go as fast as you dare. The trail is not that long and the locals use it as a shuttle trail, doing it as many times as four or five, depending on your tolerance of adrenaline.

The whole of Sumas Mtn. where this is located is full of mtn bike trails, which rock!!

"Knob Gobbler" (recently had it's ladders taken out) and now is more of a XC natural trail. It starts at the top of the Mtn. besides the telecommuncation tower. approx. 1 hour long.

"Noah Fear" twenty min approx. Starts just below the Time Killer another DH course.

UPDATE:

TimeKiller has a new exit called "TimeOut"!

short ,windy and pretty. Cedar bridging, lovely lines with a log ride,till you go through a little wet area and exit right besides the waterfall,Bakstad parking area.

To get to the new exit:

Near the end of TimeKiller you come out to a logging slash.
- Short, it takes you onto a gravel logging road.
- Turn Left go approx. 250 feet on the gravel road, just before the creek.
- Look Right which is S. and enter this small trail.
- It goes down and winds its way under a beautiful canopy, get a little scrubby as it exits just above the waterfall.
- You are now at the BAKSTAD parking area.

Directions to Time Killer:

Sumas Mtn road take Batt. road up to the first parking lot (has a gate which is locked after 9pm). We either ride up 45min by pig bike to the Time Killer and go in or take an hour twenty to go to the top to do Knob Gobbler, then go back up and finish on the Time Killer ...

Or we shuttle.

Time Killer exit is on Bakstad road which is just below the Batt. road parking lot. Note any sat/sun there are usually always riders, hook up with someone and this will make your first time experience of this mtn so much better.

Sumas can be a bit of a maze.

The locals are used to helping riders out, so don't be shy, it will be worth it.

By Mr.GPosted By: Mr.G  - Tue Dec 02 17:40:24 UTC 2008 Not Rated Upside fyi --NoahFear -starts W. side of access rd,just 200ft below locked gate (this locked gate will be moved asap and the road section has now been rebuilt.)
The locked gate is actually a junction where
KnobGobbler exits on the N.E. side of road.
HolidaySauce starts just below E. side ,where you climb up this access rd (Taggert Peak) a couple of hundred feet and S. side is entrance.
NFear starts on the W. side, look down into the ditch ,you will soon see a new bridge to take you into the NF.

Downside A tough entrance ,this was to discourage motorcycles.
The entrance will be redone before spring09.
Comment
This old trail only seems to improve with age.
The optional log ride start has been rebuilt better,a small drop or roll down ,durioded .
A new logging rd cuts through just before "potplant landing" just go across and right back in.
A very steeep section takes you onto the huge logride "durioded" to roll down or drop .
Small clearcut section here.. Go down the new ladder ,back into the canopy to exit onto a logging rd.
Logging rd--R. takes you to 1 world cup ,continue along and TimeKiller midpoint.
Lots of fun well worth doing

By cawkyrawkyPosted By: cawkyrawky  - Tue Jun 27 06:22:23 UTC 2006 Not Rated Comment i'm going to try this trail this summer.
i talked to the parksboard guy and he said that because of a washout on the access road, the gates will remain closed. probably for all of 2006. get your water chilled and your legs ready for a little hike-a-bike!

Comment Has the road up to Time Killer been reopened again. When I went up in the summer I was unable to shuttle due to the washout by the switchback before the big clear cut and view point.

Downside Too much pedaling on a big hit bike (A quote by Richie "It's all about the slopes") Comment Ride it all the time! Awsome!
