High Point

Old school Kananaskis classic. Most people ride it clockwise to maximize the DH fun.

For the experienced rider, this is a quick after-work ride that can be done in an hour or less. For those who are a bit more green, this loop presents climbing and descending challenges, but is still doable in under 2 hours.

Great Fall conditions! A couple of very small muddy sections - only enough to let others know you were mountain biking
