A little something different from your everyday shuttle at Moose... Starting at Station Flats head across the Elbow Valley trail all the way to Family Guy. Settle into the pain train for the trip all the way up to the top of FG. Turn right across the Moose Mountain road and enjoy the classic DH trip back down the mountain on Race of Spades. Return along Diamond T to get back to your car.
