This trail is one of the few pure singletrack trails on the Alberta side of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. It has always been a favorite for mountain bikers and thanks to 670 Collective Mountain Bike Club, it got re-worked and re-opened in 2013.

It follows the Beaver Creek all the way to the top at Nicole Springs campground off Plateau Trail. It is a fun mix of old school trail with roots and rugged sections, and new school bench cuts and flow. It's best ridden when dry as the roots get slippery when wet and works as both a challenging and interesting up and a fun and flowy down.
