A great family and beginner friendly trail and probably the most popular trail at the CNCPP. Man made snow until Jct. #9, natural snow from there until the end of property (NW). Lit at night until the Warming Hut.

A great connector trail in the summer between sections of single track or as an easy double track ride.
