High Point

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.

It’s fun and has some Little Rock features but has lots of moon dust on it later in the dry season

Awesome trail! Fun factor is right up there with some of the best in the Sea-to-Sky for me.

Trail SMD
It’s obvious from the elevation chart and description but expect a LOT of pedaling. Totally worth it to hit the last third of SMD and Awesome.

I would recommend this trail to anyone who likes riding uphill from the top of the shuttle road. The top section should have a green rating because I can find steeper sections of sidewalk in rossland. There was one or two technical sections but does not merit a black. Would not recommend this trail

My friend and I rode the Redtop Lower from the parking lot at the end.start of Blue Elephant on the north side Miners. It's definitely a technical climb similar to climbing up some of the sections on Seven Summits. Guess the locals were coming down on it as we got to the peak. If I were to do this trail again, I'd do what the locals did and rode up Miners and down on Redtop Lower to Blue Elephant. It's all doable in both direction, but definitely more downs is always good!

Great nice and flowy singletrack with a bit of technical climbs - love how trails in Rossland have these technical sections. Great trail to prepare you for some more rough stuff with the Full Monte. Nicely built trail!

Trail Full Monte
Great technical ups and downs on this trail. Definitely not for the faint of heart once you reach the peak and start coming down on the rocks. Love this trail! So much fun! The skinnies the ramps/jumps, and the rock slabs/drops are awesome! Very well built trail!

A lot of fun to descend after the climb. Some nice flow, some rocky bits and a few roots for good measure!

Starts off quite technical (some bits we're too technical for me = beginner), but the second half is flowy and fun.

Great intermediate flowy trail. Some tight, slow switchbacks to start it off but it opens up nicely and is a great trail with some easy roots and rocks to make sure your suspension also gets a workout.

Trail Techno Grind
A fun combination of flowy singletrack, short tech climbs, soft lome, and loose rock for some great variety. There is a section between the Stardust jct and Techno plus jct that is more of a hiking trail trying to be past-off as for biking but be patient, gets really good again.

Kind of ho-hum going down with a ton of cookie cutter switchbacks. Like the description says it's mostly green with just a couple corners that would be blue level.

Fun old school riding. Not at all like the computer generated, grade controlled, by the book trails that are overrunning the continent.

Trail Coffee Run
You'll need a chain guard, as parts of this aren't really rideable. If you end up on Milky Way Lower and Green Door lower, you'll need salt to conserve your strength, stamina, and control for Green Door Lower which includes some creative rockwork through the switchbacks. If you start out at the bike shop and work your way to the Rock Cut Pub, have a beer and load up on water as you really need to conserve your strength for what comes at you nearing Warfield.
