This is short and painful, but it's way better than Long Road to Ruin, which is long and painful.

If you climb to descend this would not be the trail for you. If you look at your Strava and see how much elevation you have gained this is a trail for you. From west to east the first climb starts easy and becomes pretty brutal. If you do not have good fitness you may have to push some sections. East to west there are two corners I need mote fitness to get. More interesting to the west. Well done trail builder I will be back.

Riding this as a climbing trail the trail name is very fitting. It's a lungbuster, the downs only lead to more ups. Atleast climbing it is doable there are no roots to hop over. I still would ride it again as a climb trail.

The fact that this app says you SHOULD enter from the north is just f*cked. It COULD be enjoyable from the south to north but still...who the f*ck designs these trails man there's lots of declining hill and not a single f*cking trail utilizing it in the right direction?

Listen to me.
Long road to ruin should be entered from the south (autistic ferit or w.e the f*ck). The problem is it'll dump you in that f*cking corner where there isn't any fun way out and it's just f*cking pig work to get back. DO NOT ENTER THIS TRAIL FROM BLUE COAL CHUTES. Going north to south on this trail was the worst f*cking idea I've had yet.

Mosquito bite is probably the most fun for your buck in all of Canmore. The track is smooth...there's over half a dozen sweet little features. You can follow it out through the dog park to the beach and make a day out of it. You can do a sweet little loop using the power line track and hit it up a couple times. Bigger features exsist on the spill way for the BMFs out there.

Hiking? Sure. I almost beat my gf for recommending this trail to bike on. 2kms straight up a f*cking mountain on some really rough terrain. The incredibly short and steep ride down also sucks balls. No features. Rough terrain. Hike this trail. Don't bike this trail.

On August second 2018 about 100 feet into the trail there was a massive grizzly bear 3ating berries from a bush about 20 feet from the trail! Stay safe, keep your eyes open, and always CARRY BEAR SPRAY!

It was fun. For the 3rd ride of the year I went on this and with the lack of cardio it was tricky but still doable. Some fun features 1/2 way in. And some technical climbers that are steep in a few sections but good. Rooty and loose ground in some corners, with two small creeks you pass through. Took about 2.5-3 hours ? Enjoy!

What a weird little connecting trail. Short but a few different paths and ways to ride it. I tried to figure out the "correct" way but given the name, my guess is the is no"correct" way. Just ride your bike and have fun! It's mostly just a connector, though - not something I'd purposely seek out.

Lots of new wooden features added. Lots of fun but be careful. There is small up and down hump hump ladder and then further north on the trail there is another tff that looks the same but it is not. it looks like an up and down ladder but it is two small bridges that are suspended on cables. they move like a bridge on a kids play structure. I hit it and was not expecting it to give/move the way it did and on the second bridge went down. Concussion. could not see for about 5 min, almost vomited. I was lucky I had my full face lid on as I had just come down rohan. would have been in the hospital if i was wearing a half shell
