Ididaride will start close to downtown Kaslo on the shores of Kootenay. Begins with a climb out of town on Jimmy Crack corn. The climbing only continues from there, with another 4 km and 400 m of sustained climbing on Branch 7 FSR up the eastern slopes of Mount Buchanan.Next is it’s onto the Access trail that traverses the mountain heading west. The trail is rugged and steep in places, The Access trail descends to the wagon road, then onto a bridge to cross the Kaslo River and accesses the True Blue Trail network. This part of the course includes a couple of stiff climbs up Spanish Moss and the new Strawberry Ridge trail, before descending back to the airport and down to the river valley. This is where you’ll wind through the woods back into town to finish on the lakeshore in the village of Kaslo.
