Did you earn your descent by pedalling to the top of Bootleg FSR? Atlas Shrugged will not disappoint and gives you the most bang for your buck. Going down for over 6km and 850m of elevation drop if you connect trails to the base area, be prepared to take a few breaks. Atlas Shrugged is named after the dog who lost his leg while playing on the trail. The only one that we know of so far. The top portion rolls down beautiful high mountain forest on natural rooty singletrack then becomes a mix of machine and hand built trail. There are many jumps, boulders and wood features along the way. There are also many options along the way to branch off to Pinch and Roll, Snow White and the Seven Wasps or the new Purple People Pleaser

Access Info

Many access points. Lower access via upper Bootridge Road. Midpoint access from the mid mountain parking lot near the start of Pinch and Roll and Snow White and the Seven Wasps. Upper access is at the very last switchback at the top of Bootleg FSR. Please use 4x4 and drive at a reasonable speed to save the road.

       You’ll find full mountain mix of dirt, rocks, roots, those baseball size rocks that bounce up and hit you in the shins. There are tight single track sections and parts where you’ll be guessing where the trail goes. It’s quite the ride to the top, but you’ll be smiling ear to ear as soon as you start.

       You must be thinking of Snow Mexcan or something else all together.

       I am a new rider who has gone down some black diamond-rated trails near Fernie, and this one scared the shit out of me, haha. I had a harder time here than Swine Flu, Brokeback or Mushroomhead for sure. Kind of wished I could have seen some people shred it though. Someone needs to do some filming up here.

       What an insanely fun trail! The top section is basically a loamer with a bunch of natural hits, then it turns into a great mix of fast bermy trail interspersed with short steep sections of techy rock, jumps, and drops. Wished I had time to pedal up for a second go. Nice work builders!
