Part of the Tunnel Mountain trail network. Flowy cross country singletrack with minor elevation gain, most of which comes in a short, loose, steep "horse" climb near the end of the trail. Two short skinnies mid-trail, both with ride-arounds. Trail rides somewhat harder in reverse with 3-4 tough, punchy climbs.

Access via NW end of Inns of Banff hotel parking lot
