      Station Flats and Allen Bill [a.k.a. Allen Bill Pond before the flood of 2013] trailheads are off of Hwy 66, SW of Bragg Creek. This is old school XC territory, used by mountain bikers since the late 80s [earlier?]. With the development of the West Bragg Creek and Moose Mountain trails, things are a lot less crowded than they used to be.

      Station Flats is also a staging area for equestrians, but they are not as common as they used to be - maybe 5% of all users. Cattle graze in the area from mid-June to mid-October, but get moved around every week or so.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: Regional Recreation Area

      Access Info:
      From Bragg Creek, head south to the T-junction of Hwy 22 and Hwy 66. Go right [west] on Hwy 66 for ~15km. Just past the bridge over the Elbow River, the Allen Bill parking lot is on the left, and the Elbow Ranger Station parking is on the right. About 1km further up the road, Statioin Flats parking is on the right. Moose Mountain Rd is another ~2km past Station Flats.
