An out-and-back XC trail within Gladstone Provincial Park. The first climb out the Provincial Campground area is a significant push and will require a hike-a-bike for most people but after this section the trail is a moderate to intermediate XC ride with a lot of ups and downs. While not technically demanding this trail has quite a few sections that are unnerving to the beginner and even some intermediate riders may find it sketchy in places. There are periods of significant exposure on large side-hills where the trail is pure singletrack. Be careful and ride within your means as speed can be your enemy when the trail suddenly drops away from you.

Access Info

This trail is accessed via Texas Creek Provincial Campground

Couple of flow buster trees down along the ways. Too big for a handsaw.

4.5 stars? Lol. Not a destination trail by any stretch of the imagination. Two stars is more appropriate. Zero features. Better for hiking than...

About 6 large trees down on trail. Possible to climb over without too much effort. Trees have been down since May.
