Recommended direction is counter-clockwise. Reversing the direction is allowed, but puts you in the non-normal directions for Strange Brew, Sugar Mama, Bobcat, and Snakes & Ladders.

This is a "greatest hits" 30km loop from the West Bragg parking lot with 4 solid climbs for 1000m of elevation gain.

Starts with a good climb up Ranger Summit to Snakes & Ladders for a flowy descent followed by another solid climb up the back half of the trail. Meets up with Ridgeback for a rocky descent South to Bobcat for the third climb. Takes a right down Sugar Mama for a rooty descent ending with a short half loop of Snagmore and the final climb up Sugar Daddy. Finishes off with the descent down Strange Brew and the tail end of Boundry Ridge.

Trails are all Blue, but the 4 climbs bring the difficulty level up significantly.

The trail is mostly cleared except for just before the summit approaching from the south. Huge amount of trees down and the trail can’t be located. I bailed out to the Boundary horse trail and took that to the next junction.

The middle half is unrideable due to downed trees. You can’t even find the trail. The bottom 25% is good with lots of small trees that are easy to roll over.

Trail is mostly clear except for 2 large trees. Easy to get around.
