      Located in the Fort Whyte Alive wilderness conservation area, this is a legacy course from the 2017 Canada Summer Games Mountain Bike competition. The original course with advanced technical features remains, with some recent upgrades. The area also has easier less technical trail segments for developing riders to enjoy and build confidence on.

      A large man made hill with short technical climbs and descents is encompassed by flowing single track with table tops and berms. Technical features include drops, table tops, gap jump, boulders, logs, steeps, berms, and a BMX track. There are three technical, rocky climbs to challenge intermediate to advanced riders, as well as a wide track smooth switchback climb, and a longer easier single track trail with some climbing.

      Due to the nature of the soil in the area, it becomes mucky and rutted when wet, so please wait for dry days to ride :-)

      Helmet use mandatory.

      Riders must stay on the marked trails and follow all posted rules, including directional signs

      Unmarked areas are not maintained and may contain hidden or unknown hazards

      Anyone leaving the marked trails is a trespasser and willingly assumes all risks

      Ride safe and stay within your limits
