      A single track stacked loop system, on the northeast side of the Pass Powderkeg ski hill in Blairmore that now extends to the summit ridge with great views to the West.

      Pass Powderkeg was the site for the 2009 S. Alberta Summer Games cross-country and Alberta Cup downhill mountain biking events. Some of that trail is still in use but 12 km of singletrack trail have been added since 2010 including the Berma-Grin flow trail in 2014.

      At the trailhead you will find a skills park for a little diversion.

      There is a very nice mix of high-quality, cross country trail that will take you to the top of the hill with viewpoints of Turtle Mt and peaks on the Divide. A number of options are available around mid-hill so you can mix it up.

      Berma-Grin, Alberta Cup DH and Roots O'Hazard are downhill only; all other trail can be ridden in either direction.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
      Albert Stella Arena at 17 Ave. and 127 St in Blairmore
