The Trail


The trail was predominantly built by Austin Davignon, a highly regarded trail builder who won the 2022 Red Bull Rampage Digger award. Austin collaborated closely with Vallée Bras-du-Nord's in-house teams, as well as other partners such as Gravity Logic and Sentiers Boréals.

Godzilla, a jump trail approximately 3 kilometers in length with a vertical drop of 300 meters, provides a variety of features, including 50 jumps, offering something for everyone from the seasoned vet to the up-and-comers.

The trail is divided into three sections that increase in technicality and speed as you progress, allowing riders to warm up before taking on the more challenging segments. We're stoked to see a trail that prioritizes progression, offering riders of all ages the chance to hone their freeriding skills.

 If I may put my two cents, this is over rated. Yes there are nice and big features on that trail. But also some weird things and uncontinuous progression. Treat it with respect ! cause if you think the next jump will be as flowy and far as the one you just did... you might endup way to far or off the the trail...
