Two of Fernie's classics linked together with some other hidden gems to create an awesome loop that essentially starts and ends in the same spot
Getting to Slunt (S-bomb) is a challenge there's no way around it. Your climb is rewarded with epic views and alpine-ish feels at the top. Then a super fun looong down.
Project 9 has a local beer named after it, and after another tough tiring climb, strap in for a fast dh. Only thing better than Project 9 in the summer, is a cold Project 9 beer after.

This loop is classified as a enduro ride, and a longer travel trail, all mountain, or enduro bike is ideal
