A good intermediate downhill trail that goes through some of Nordegg's old mining areas, the trail is named after one of these areas. You can expect some faster single track, quad trail ripping with small jumps and and a short canyon section. A fun ride that is a good enduro loop, takes about 2 hours from Nordegg. Upper sections will be wet till end of June most years.
