The climbing trail to access Hail Merry and also a great beginner descent. No TTFs but the infamous "Cliff Hanger" bridge is something that needs to be seen. The climb is quite strenuous with lots of challenging switchbacks and a fairly consistent grade that doesn't offer much chance for recovery. The descent provides a good challenge to an unconfident beginner rider while still being a smooth fast twisty ride for the more skilled riders.

Access Info

2km up Merry Creek FSR is the parking lot. Head up the bottom of Hail Merry and take the first right fork on the bridge.

Checked out the base of the trail and still lots of snow. Tracks showed someone had descended but the trail was more snow than not so doubt it...
