Starting in the village you can make your way up Silvershack and across to the Sovereign network along Rubber Boot and the Aberdeen Expressway. You can then discover some hidden gems with Upper Dagmal and the legendary Hammered Cow. (Can you say rock slabs). Make your way back on My Way or the Hwy and back up Coffee Grinder and Popal Pass. (You have the option of cutting off on Middle Rock is the New Berm for some added slab/rock riding. Make your way up on Either Popal Pass or Gold Mountain to the Upper Snowmobile parking lot and hit the flowy sections of Dagmal over to Abbey Road for a pleasant peddle back to Silver Star Village. These trails are definitely some of the hardest trails in the valley, so careful on the rock slabs and it is recommended not to ride these in the wet.

      Thanks for the great season, we are now closed and getting ready for winter. It's now time to take advantage of the rest of the trails Vernon has to offer!
