This is short and painful, but it's way better than Long Road to Ruin, which is long and painful.

Long road to ruin, is literally a long road to ruin. You will be ruined. But you will also be ruined on Georgetown, only that's a much shorter road to ruin. Personally, I think Georgetown is the way to go. Neither way is pleasant

Long Road to Ruin is a great climb out of the valley after you have descended Odessa or Coal Chutes. Ignore anything “Bre-Dude” has posted, as he clearly hasn’t a clue.

Blue coal chutes IS fun. Don't f*cking exit to long road to ruin. Don't listen to anyone saying long road to ruin is both ways...that trail going in THAT direction is f-u-c-k-i-n-g horrid. I'm convinced the only sane way out of this area is georgetown interpretive.

Trail The Odyssey
The first 500 meters would be great if you weren't going up it. Otherwise, odyssey is one of the better runs.

Trail The Odyssey
Fun, flowy, well-built with some great views. Potential to get over-excited and pick up a bit too much speed for the height of some berms, but a few runs should take care of that. Do recommend!

Short but sweet, couple of tricky drops but nothing you don't see coming and can't walk around. One of my favourites!

Super buff and awesome flow. Closest thing to a Rossland or PG trail around. Thanks, trail builders!

Trail The Odyssey
Great trail, great flow and many fun surprises along the way. Like a little stump-jump and the drops at the end. Great extension now to make a longer loop.

That was done by the volunteers of Canmore Trail Alliance. We were there several times and I was impressed of the results :-)))

Generally good. It would be better if the riders on studded 2.6” or 3” tyres rode some where else. 4.0” is the minimum to qualify as a fat bike tyres and the skinnier tyres are rutting up the descent trails
