High Point

Route takes you up and over the Broken Shield trail and then back along the backside of that "mountain" on the return trip back to the start of the route. In spots both up and down there is a significant amount of loose rock combined with steep grades that make climbing challenging at times. Recommended route is over the mountain towards the dump, as the climb up out of the dump is very challenging with grades exceeding 30% combined with loose rock in sections.

Rode it with two kids, the uphill was mostly ridable except for a few sections, the down was a blast and somewhat challenging with loose rocks on steep parts. Nothing is market so get a good view of the map before looking for the trail

Hello. When was this last ridden? Is this a popular trail in the area? Are the a lot of MX bikes or ATVs? Don't wanna get surprised on the mtb!

Is there a bike club or someone taking care of these trails? Currently it's a lot of unmarked quad trails. Some ruts and washouts because of that. I would be interested in going back if there is some single track. The ridgeline looks like it could have some wicked downhill sections.

Not as of yet, but I'd be open in starting something. I'm working on developing singletrack, but I'm not up there enough to be regularly working on it.

I’d love to work on adding single track to the area. Lots of potential.

So much potential to build some incredible Canadian Sheild single track with massive rock rolls/drops off this double track. Any experienced trail builders in the area want to plan?

I'm not up there as often as I'd like to be throughout the year, but I'd love to build more trails around "the mountain" and have already got a few routes in mind given some of my off-the-track hiking in the area.

An ATV trail that appears to be used on one side more than the other by either mountain bikers or dirt bikers. The entire trail was rideable, but would be some very muddy sections during wet periods. Some very steep climbs as the trail approaches Broken Shield, but strong riders will be able to make them.
