New this year – More Trail, Less Road!
The 40 km starts in lower Kaslo, on the shore of Kootenay Lake, then follows the water’s edge around to Kaslo Bay, popping onto the highway briefly before sliding behind the guard rail and down along Jimi Crack Corn. This fun little skirmish flows onto an interesting climb up the East Access Trail. A few kms up the single track, you will emerge onto Branch 7 – in past years the main route up – to finish this first endurance testing climb. You will follow Branch 7 to Turn Up where you begin your descent down to No Brakes. Then it’s a right turn back on to the Access Trail, heading west to the Monster, then a swoop down Mr Skinny, which drops you on the Kaslo/New Denver Hwy. Enjoy a 3 km rest or sprint (up to you) back towards Kaslo, before turning right towards the Kaslo River crossing and pumping up a windy single track climb on the River Moss Trail to the gravel pit, where the 20 km race starts. You have completed the first half of the 40… and join the 20km racers on the back 20km.
RIDE ONLY
Start from Loggers Sports Area – On the Ring Rd off 2nd Street

      Super good conditions! Watch out for bar clipping trees. Has a great flow with a bit of tech. Shred this before the end of the season!

      Great shape, 95%! Don't hit the kicky dirt jump around the top, a lil loose just before you enter the tree line and a couple of dusty berms.

      Sad to see this great trail in quite rough shape. A significant number of trees down. Many in not ideal locations. Would strongly recommend you give this a miss until someone posts it is fixed up. If you do ride please be smarter than we were and bring a hand saw. 60% could probably be cleared with a handsaw and some sweat. reporter
