The 2% trail provides an easy route for accessing the Moonrakers via Sternwheeler. Grind up the first half kilometre of Sternwheeler, then turn right onto the gentle 2% trail and follow easy singletrack to Sander Lake. From Sander lake you have several options.

The name 2% comes from this trail’s history as an old railway bed dating back to Golden’s logging past. The southern 1.5km of 2% is singletrack leading to Sander Lake. From Sander Lake the 2% trail continues, but changes to gravel road for 5.4km leading to Cedar Lake Trailhead. The road is impassable by car due to a locked gate.

Access Info

Access from either the Moonraker trailhead, or the Gudjonson trailhead via Sternwheeler trail.
