The 2016 Singletrack 6 will kick off with Stage 1 on the southeast side of town in the Castle and Ridgemont networks. The stage will start with our traditional downtown roll-out before tackling the classic Hyperventilation climb and the timed descent on Hyperextension. From there it’s on to some more great new trails: Kush, Kushier, and Kushiest. Then it’s back on the classic and fun Coal Discovery trail, and one more climb up through Sidewinder, Eric’s and Kid’s Stuff. We finish up with a challenging run down Hessian and Broken Hip into the finish at the Fernie Aquatic Centre.

Major slash piles/logging about 2/3 of the at from town (near Little Chainring/Big trouble). Very disappointing as this is a fun flowy trail. If riding from town ensure you turn around when you see the first slash pile. If coming down from Porky Blue or other trails in this area be aware and use the power line.
