*Elevation data may be highly variable by device or mapping platform, as different software may use various data sources and calculation methods. Our total elevation gain for the stage is a middle estimate based on readings from multiple devices.

Riders will head up the road to the ski area, providing ample opportunity to spread out and warm-up before hitting the dirt, as well as getting the biggest climb of the day out of the way early A little bit more climbing on the ski area and the course enters Kimberley’s extensive singletrack trail network with a challenging bit of rocky climbing through Moe’s Canyon, before hitting the dirt with the handcrafted Magic Line singletrack.

After a series of fun descents and climbs, riders will find themselves at the top of the timed descent. With over 300 m of descending over 5km, this descent promises to be one of the longest and funnest timed descents of the week. Starting off with the signature “Thunder Turkey” and leading into “Shapeshifter” and “Hoodoo View”, riders will hit the lowest point on the course, requiring a hard effort on the 2nd biggest climb of the day to repay the gravity gods for the fun of the 300m descent. From there another moderate descent and climb will take the riders onto the town pathway system, and back into the town for a Platzl finish.

Great trail over varied terrain. Completely dry except for the last downhill that has a puddle in front of every hump. I wouldn’t have ridden it if I’d known…

Trail Connie's Way
This trail was a lot better than we expected. It was fairly flat and mellow, but there was one fun section that had three small wooden drops. Actually a good trail of your looking to build your skills on drops. One of the best trails in the area.

Generally in great shape - dry and dusty as expected. There are several large trees down which will require chainsaw removal.

Great trail, I'd recommend signage be posted to make it directional for everyone's enjoyment and safety. As noted, this trail should be ridden clockwise. It's a fast finish with limited sight lines. Anyone trying to ride counter clockwise is taking their life into their own hands.

Hats off to the trail builders for this one!!
A true modern "all mountain" ride with a bit of everything.
Much of the climbs are "dark blue" and very rough and techy. Probably not one for novice riders due to the techy and punchy climbs.
Currently the last descent has quite a bit of water damage in spots, so just be aware before you come around the corner at mach chicken.
Highly recommend this trail though!!

Possible bear den? Where Moe's meets Magic Line coming into the ski hill. Visible from across the bridge. Also heard a bear nearby.

Very fun trail, especially going from SW Passage down to Hoodoo View segment. The segment from Upper Thunder Turkey down to Hoodoo View is longer and more flowy but with a bit more dips and punchy climbs.

Fun and flowy. Go on this trail if you want fast, flowy, fun. Go on Mr Toad if you want some technical fun.

Lots of loose rocky climbs. Great trail! Very well built. Fun descents. The trail time is wrong, there’s no possible way a normal person on a decent bike could do this in under thirty minutes. My wife and I ride a lot, and with minimal stops to take in some of the beautiful views, we were over an hour and fifteen min of total time with just under an hour of ride time. (57 min)

Very good conditions on July 28,2018, not very dusty or smokey. Excellent ride. Some long tough climbs for our skill level, but very rewarding downhills.

Very impressed with the trail, good mix of loose and fixed rocks with a flowy jump line at the end. If you aren't a fan of hills I recommend biking to the base of the 3rd climb using green rates access trails.

Really nice trail! Had a very small window of time to ride a trail in the area and glad I chose this one. Thanks to the trail builders for being awesome. This trail was a blast to ride. If I'm ever this way again I'll be riding it again for sure and hopefully get to see what else Kimberly has to offer.
