This is the climbing route to access the Moose Mountain trails without having to use the Moose Mountain Road. This trail has lots of technically challenging climbing with steep switchbacks, roots, and rocks to deal with. You could also ride down this trail, but it does not flow well and there are many better options available, such as Family Guy. Hikers are rare.

Access Info

Access this trail from the parking area at the bottom of Moose Mountain Road, off of Hwy 66, just west of Paddy's Flats. Pneuma also crosses Elbow Valley, Sulphur Springs, Race of Spades and Special K on the way to intersect with the Kananaskis Fire Lookout Trail and Moosepackers.

 First half going up to 727 is nice and easy single track. After 727 gets a steeper and a tad more technical. Overall a great climb beats the road unless your shuttling!!
