Probably the most pleasant way to get around Camp Chief Hector. CCH is a great descent, but the ride back to Barrier Dam can be a pain. By going along Stoney Extension to Barrier Powerline, you avoid the tedious, horsey section of Stoney Trail.

      Rode this on March 9. Lots of snow with a decently packed track for the asscent. Had a go at Jewel and ended up descending back down prairie view.

      One big tree across trail, but theres a path around it. Since its late in the season (Oct 29), this will probably get picked up in the spring cleanup.

      I guess that this is my 2nd hit of this trail, but I have told my bike buddies today that this is going to be my first time again on this trail. they called it the jail trail back in the days.
