An excellent starting and finishing trail for any Beacon Hill/Camp Sekani ride.

This launches out of the Shield's Park parking area as a wide dirt path/former service road... follow it for about 1/10th of a mile and then look for a well used single track to the left in front of a graffiti rock. This single track climbs and winds its way up towards the towers. Good views and neat rock outcroppings are scattered throughout. There are many optional trails and routes that peel off on your way up. You will cross the service road so keep those eyes peeled and stay on the single track.

Enjoy as a fast flow descent to end the ride. Some smaller banked turns, small rollers and a massive natural wall ride make this the cherry on top of your adventure.
