Awesome challenging uphill trail... way better than sucking up dust on the road... last downhill section to moosepackers will keep you on your toes ... extremely jagged rock sections.. pick your lines wisely... you do not want to eat it this far in

Never had more fun on a climb. Steep, rooted switchbacks and some tech climbing make this earn its black diamond status. If you spin circles, not pistons, then you’ll still have legs when you reach the top.

Station flats to Moose Mountain Road was nice a dry. You need good legs to get up but it’s a nice horse trail

I rode down Hotlaps up Pneuma and it was awesome! Some good root features and awesome corners to practice on for me. The trail is in good condition. There is a bridge that is wide, but would recommend walking if you’re not comfortable with a big drop...there’s a quick climb after it as well so would get some speed to stay balanced and climb clean up.

I concur, this is one of the best technical climbing trails. Some people hate this trail and prefer to ride the gravel road. I prefer to ride this up to the top (past Special K), even if I have to push my bike up the boulders in a couple of small steep sections. Way better than sucking up gravel dust when trucks speed past you. The technical switchbacks are just awesome!

A great climbing trail. The trail is consistently challenging but enjoyable up to the intersection with Special-K. After that it gets very rocky and is a little beyond my abilities as an intermediate rider. The very last section becomes a downhill that is very rocky and was beyond my comfort level at points, especially since I was riding alone.

Greasy and slimey at the bottom and various points on the way up. Back tyre typewritering all over the place on those roots!

If you feel like pedaling up for a lap on Race of Spades or 7-27, this is a nice alternative to get you there instead of riding along the highway. It’s a multi-use/horse trail so not super designed for biking but it gets you where you need to go.

Superb climbing trail. Don't suffer through Sulfur Springs or the road (shudder), take this up and you'll enjoy the climb almost as much as the ride down Race of Spades or Family Guy.

First half going up to 727 is nice and easy single track. After 727 gets a steeper and a tad more technical. Overall a great climb beats the road unless your shuttling!!

Where do you park your car? I am planning to go ride the down hill trails this weekend for the first time ever but don't know how I will climb up the hills with my santa cruz down hill bike once I have already gone down.

A great ride. They put a lot of work into building this trail.

When the trail ended at Sulphur Springs I took a left turn rolled/peddled back down to Hwy 1.

Between Station Flats and Ing’s Mine Road there are several very rocky (and rough) sections. The west end of the trail ( section of trail between Powderface parking and the intersection with Ushoulda trail) is a much nicer and smoother (and much easier) ride.
