A long ride, almost all singletrack. Redtop up and down, Caldera, Eddie J, lower Mongoose, KC, Techno Grind, Full Monte, Milky Way, Green Door, Rogers, Cemetery, Happy Valley, through Rossland, Drakes Doukhobor, Tamarack, SMD(A), up Doukhobor, Tamarac, Whiskey on the Rocks.

"Trails in Route" section can be a little confusing since the ride touches small sections of a number of trails. Also goes both ways on the same trail at different points in the ride, but these show as just one trail entry.
