      *update -lower sections were logged as of 2018 -navigation difficult
      The Jack’s trail system is rough and rustic old school network in the Thompson Lake area of Hinton. The trails can be difficult to navigate, some sections are grown over and expect some quad tracks and roads. Roots and wet areas define the experience. If this is your first ride in Hinton, perhaps start with Happy Creek. Otherwise, it's fun network to explore and navigate, a local favorite once you know the trail and can pin it. Ride all trails clockwise from the trail head.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
