This is one of the more popular rides in the Moonraker network. Connecting the northern and southern ends of the Moonraker network, Arrowhead is a fantastic singletrack ride in both directions. Expect smooth singletrack with some short descents and climbs. If starting at the trail’s northern end, a short ride up to the high point leads to a fast decent all the way to the junction with Barking Dog. The rest of the trail follows low-elevation forested ridges with fast ups and downs. It offers the occasional view of the Purcells to the west and the Rockies to the east. This trail is generally one of the first trails to dry out.

Access Info

At the Cedar Lake Rec Site, trail is opposite the entrance to campground.
