Quite mucky after recent rains (June, 2022). Best stay off until dries out a bit. Great flowy green trail otherwise.

Extra fun in the winter... instead of trail erosion issues, you get to ride over river ice on the edge!

I think this is a pretty cool, underrated trail. Do Raven first in to this and it’s a great ride. Lots of techy climbs and descents akin to rock gardens... without the rocks. Very unique arid terrain you won’t see much of in Edmonton. Definitely susceptible to rain though. Essentially becomes mud flats until it dries out.

This trail hooks up great with Raven. It is a truly unique trail and I would recommend. Very different terrain for Edmonton

What a trail!! Makes me feel like I’m riding back in BC for a bit. One of the longer stretches of technical downhill in Edmonton. This is an Edmonton must-ride. Don’t let the rating scare you. It’s a pretty soft black.

July 20-21, 2019 • The Edmonton World Triathlon (ITU) will be taking place this weekend and will affect access to this and other trails.

Due to the poor trail conditions we hope that you stay of the singletrack until it dries. However if you ride, please avoid this area until after the weekend. ITU signage will be posted in the area.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

This trail does not exist any longer. Frickin downed trees everywhere. I think the rich people that actually live on top at the Saskatchewan Drive likely cut those trees and branches on purpose to block people from riding down or up that hill. Machete is way better anyway.

Why are so many of Edmonton trails photos flooded with selfies and bike pics from boyblue(Alain)?

It sucks to have so many pictures that are useless to actually showing the trail.. Unfortunately it would be a huge pain to have mods remove them all one by one.

Is the hole in this trail a TTF or a hazard? I would love to build a bridge over it - unless that is the best part of the trail?

I think this is one of the most fun trails in the city, even though it goes by pretty quickly. Lotsa speed, fun drops, just great.

Yeah, I hit those way more often, they're a lot of fun. I rarely get to the Fox Drive area just because it's kinda out of the way for us.
