This is your morning or early afternoon ride on Day 2 of the Front Country Adventure itinerary. After riding the Valley Trail from the Village, through the Alpine neighbourhood, you will start the sustained steep climb up to Howler.

Howler's descent has plenty of flow compared to some of the Valley's other tech trails so let of the brakes and have some fun!

Expect this ride to take 2-3 hours depending on how hard you push on the climb.

Walked Lower Howler today cleaning drains and picking rocks. Although numerous puddles remain, the trail stands up well to wet weather and would be a good ride.
