A mix of machine and hand-built trail that connects Snagmore and the West Bragg Creek parking lot. Some roots and rocks, especially near the top. From the south end, after a short descent from Snagmore, the trail grinds up to the top of the ridge through mixed forest. There are two false summits before you reach the gate at the top that signals you are finished climbing. From the north, it's a steady climb all the way up.

Note that most of the traffic on this trail is northbound, either from Snagmore or more likely from Strange Brew.

Access Info

From the north, access is from the Crystal Line XC ski trail south of the West Bragg Creek parking lot.
From the south, access is from the Elbow XC ski trail or Snagmore.

       Lots of mud. Not possible to ride without damaging the trail.
