Sweet singletrack descent into berms and built-up stunts greet you on the way in. As you get past this first section, head into densely wooded area where there's plenty of log rides and drops to occupy your time. This trail is ever expanding. The stunts start out basic and get harder and harder as time goes by. Somewhere around 800 ft vertical.
When you've ridden all the stunts, head out onto the fire road track, and turn right. Here you can either take a series of trails on the left that kick you back onto this ATV track, or head straight towards a main exit (very steep) that takes you down to the main ski trail. If you decide to go straight, when you get to the bottom of the descent, head left and make your way back to Riverdale (you won't get lost as there's only one main route).
Once you get to the backside of Riverdale (greenbelt) simply head down the hill and into the neighbourhoods. It's easy to find your way back to Lewes Blvd. from here.
From downtown Whitehorse, head towards Riverdale on Lewes Blvd. Turn left at the stoplights across from Selkirk Elementary School. Travel up this street until you see the turn-off for Grey Mountain Road, where you hang a left.
Ride up Grey Mountain Road for approximately 15-20 minutes, past the cemetery, quarry, and gun club, and finally a dirt pullout where cars can park overlooking the valley.
100-200m past this pullout is a trailhead on the right, just above where the trees are. Keep your eyes open! If you start to go downhill on the road past this point, you've gone too far.

UpsideThe first section of B&S is fun, tight single track, with fun bermed corners and steep. Not much flow though. DownsideThe first bit of the trail is very deceiving, you'd think that you're in DH heaven, but then the trail really flattens out and becomes more of a XC trail than a DH trail. All the stunts on this trail are falling apart, are not well built, or have been torn down by unknown people who don't want people riding on ladder bridges to 10 foot drops. There is no flow to this trail at all. CommentWith the amount of actual riding that needs to be done, I don't recommend this trail to anyone riding a full suspension DH bike, as it can get very boring. The best bike for this trail is a FR dual suspension (6" travel front and rear), a FR hardtail, or an All Mountain bike. The beginning and the stunts are too steep/big for a XC bike, and the end of the trail is too flat for a DH bike.
