Considering this is the only way to/from Alice Lake the northshores really should be wider to allow disabled or people coming back from injury to use it.

Trail The Covenant
Would agree with the description, impossible climb from south to north. Imagine it would be lots more fun in the other direction. That being said, a very engaging trail.

An awesome legacy ride. This is a 2 way trail, but only
room for one in the long bridge over the bog. Eyes open and show respect. Don’t taking the bridge when others are already mid-span.

Top notch climb trail. Fun and engaging without all the technical BS that just slows you down.

Trail The Covenant
One of the favorites. From north to south. Then connect to 4play and finish with the rock slabs on lower 4play. Such a fun loop. Covenant is a beautiful trail with ups and downs, roots, small rock rolls, and everything to challenge an intermediate rider or fun to shred for advanced riders who love the climb as much as the downhills.

Nice and tacky thanks to some morning rain.
In good shape, minus the "turkeys" riding down the trail skidding around each turn.
Is a flashing neon sign required at the top?

Trail The Covenant
I'd rate the trail as 1 star if it wasn't for the waterfalls. They're worth checking out, and raise the rating of the trail to 2 stars.
