Rode it today. So much fun and super flowy but there is some uphill as expected. I did it clockwise and at the end of the trail and guy told me he seen a rattlesnake so be aware.

Also loop elevations are not correct, expect about a 150m elevation gain for the loop. That is way off what this app shows which is around 370m.

Quite an easy loop to ride and good for beginners also. Offers nice canyon, lake and town of Invermere views. Expect to complete a loop in 35 mins if you are in good shape and around 50 mins if you are stopping to take in some of the views.

Ensure you park on the north side of Toby Creek Road in the parking lot. The locals appreciate it.

There will be some basic maintenance and signage going in there over the next few weeks. The experience will be much improved.

Shame it's overgrown in spots, but very worth it anyway. Would probably disagree with the blue rating. Black seems more appropriate, especially in current conditions.
