Fun old-school trail. Narrow and a bit rough but pretty fast. Optional jumps are really big but there is also a few blue features. Fun skinnies as well.

Wow, have some love for a classic handbuilt cross country trail. I don’t usually comment, but had to given the negative reviews on this one. All of the Ridgebacks are challenging trails with roots and rocks, punchy climbs, and some tight spots between trees. They are not meant to be flow trails, but if you ride them often, you will find some flow. Over the years they have been given ‘lots of love by CMBA, and are one of the few trails in the area that use boardwalks to avoid swampy areas. It’s a solid blue cross country mountain bike trail; you should ride it.

This is a hiking trail. The climb is very much a hiking trail, so too is the descent. Just for anyone expecting an actual blue bike trail…

This should be labelled as hiking primary on trailforks

I’d have to agree that for being what’s supposed to be a mountain bike trail, it’s the worst trail in the area. CMBA has not given much love to this trail over the years. More exposed off camber roots than ever. However it is a necessary evil coming down bobcat, so what you do?

Use caution after a rain, or you’ll end up in the trees like I did. If you’re an XC diehard with some decent tech skills you’ll like it. Otherwise, you’ll hate it.

I don't get why the creator made this route. To start with it doesn't go all the way to Canmore, it stops at Heart Creek. And why add a ton of dirt road KMs on Powderface/68, and not use Lusk pass? If the goal is an epic point-to-point between Bragg and Canmore there are better ways to do it.

Rode full loop clockwise from Powderface Creek Trail to PF pass, down west side to Creek Trail, along PF Road to Prairie Creek Trailhead back to Powderface parking lot. Total time 4 hrs. Nice tour with some hard work along the way.
Notable: After passing the link to Prairie Creek, as noted, the trail is a constant rock covered steepish grade trail till near the pass. Unless one is determined and very fit, pushing through a good part of this should be anticipated. Heading down the West side is technical, but manageable. The Creek Trail is a clean sporty ride ending at the road. Due to time of day, opted to follow road to PCT. PCT is single track and a good ride. On last 1/3 of trail one will be confronted with a series of short steepish climbs as you make your way back to PF parking Lot.

Trail T-Dub
I can answer the name question. I was one of the 4 original trail builders and after breaking trail so to speak, it showed promise but was so much work that we called it “that wh@r3”. In later years, once the trails became sanctioned and maps printed, that name didn’t go into print very well. So saner minds prevailed and “T-Dub” was reborn. It’s a great 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!

Trail SHAFT
I disagree- it is a blue on the Moose Mountain scale. Very enjoyable on my 140 mm hardtail. Compared to the WBC blues- yeah, it might be considered a black. The few steep bits are short and easily scoped out, and walked if you are uncomfortable with them. The final steep to Canyon Creek (which I avoid) can be bypassed by keeping left at the merge with T-Dub.

Trail SHAFT
Trailforks & most the world rely on the IMBA grades, providing a standard anyone can follow.

If every region had it's own scale it would be difficult for visitors to assess and potentially unsafe.
Also, where is the 'moose mountain scale' you reference available? Is it online or posted in the area?

Just because there are more difficult trails in an area does not mean the rating system changes.

Please rate trails appropriately.

Trail SHAFT
I stand by my assertion that SHAFT is an excellent example of a "blue" trail, in the Moose scheme of things. With that being so- if you want to be consistent between local riding regions- that makes many of the WBC trails "green", such as Merlin. But that's not how things work in reality. Quoted from the IMBA document you link to above:
"4. Evaluate Difficulty Relative to Local Trails
Trails should be rated relative to other trails in the region. Don’t evaluate each trail in isolation. Consider all the trails in a region and how they compare to one another. This will help you rank the relative difficulty of each trail and will help trail users select an appropriate route. Trails will rate differently from region to region. A black diamond trail in one region may rate as a blue square in another region, but the ratings should be consistent locally."

Just to chime the real problem is that there is no grading between blue and black . In Europe, uk and Southern Hemisphere (rest of the world basically) there is red between blue and black. And it helps a lot as a large portion of riders enjoy riding those kinds of trails and it really helps segment trails better.
Loamzilla- red (1 black option)
Pistolero - red (streeps)
Sidetrax - red (semi steeps)
Shaft - red (physical with loose rocks)
Race of spades - red (physical) with black options
Flow - blue
Shoulda - blue
Merlin - very blue

There’s the same issues in BC ,they have blues that would be black anywhere else

I agree with the previous post. SHAFT is not a blue run. My hands can tell you the difference between 727/Family Guy and SHAFT within the first two minutes of SHAFT being much rougher and super steep near the end. If anyone with admin access reads this, please consider changing it. You’ll get someone hurt by being an EnduroBro and saying you’ll be good on a hardtail or even 120mm bikes.

I’m just new to mountain biking so I’m just trying. To get comfortable with being on the bike and riding these trails. I’m not sure if it’s just me but I would say these ratings are very much on the conservative side. In my opinion there’s no way shaft is a blue run. VERY rocky and lots of places to wipe out. I would say this is closer to a black but again I am a beginner. Out of all the trails I’ve ridden at Moose so far, I find 727 the most enjoyable and the smoothest trail but I would even like to find something easier and work my way up.

Just to counter the ‘worst trail in the area’ comment in case visitors get the idea that it is not a quality trail. It has rooty sections but is decently fun with a few smaller climbs. More importantly it is a good connector to get to bobcat and ridgeback 3 and 4. If you do all the ridgebacks it makes for a decent out and back.

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.

this trail must have changed a lot from this 2019 comment, as it's fine running the suggested north to south direction.
The second half descent has steps & roots, ending with the board walk.
If you want more challenge than fun ride up hill roots from the south boardwalk end of trail. A difficult technical uphill section is expected on rugged mountain biking trails.

If biking, best to go left at trailhead and push your bike up a steep hill but enjoy the rest of the trail down. But if you want to climb and climb some more with a somewhat messy steep horse trail at the end, then go right at trailhead. Mud holes bog you down at the low points, just where you want to get a head of steam up for the next hill, you have to slow down/stop at the mud holes. This seems to be more of a horse trail, path doesnt appear to be used much by bikes.

The sign that shows the closure is not well marked, A small notice that has a map is posted at the entrance of Tom Snow from the Mountain Road. We looked at it and thought it was in the South direction and proceeded on the trail going North.

Easy hike and short loop, Close to Calgary (1 hour drive), good for families and beginners, there is a long hill if you go clockwise. There isn't any awesome view! just trees.

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!!
