This is a route that follows some of the popular singletrack in Bowmont Park. Following the banks of the Bow River you will be treated to some decent undulating inner city dirt with a few short punchy climbs. This route can be linked up with Sideshow Bob directly to the SE and Twelve Mile Coulee to the NW via a couple km of new paved pathway and tunnels under Stoney Trail. Generally dries out fairly quickly after rain as it is exposed river bank. During winter it can be good fatbiking conditions, and very often rideable on a regular MTB with studs due to walkers and Chinooks.

Be prepared to yield to dog walkers and oncoming bike traffic, especially on blind corners.

There is one section near the Silver Springs ravine that does not allow bikes, stick to the upper track, signage is obvious.

Access Info

From the west you can park at the Bowmont Park lot that is on 51 Ave NW, near the corner of Bearspaw Dam Rd and 85 St NW. From the east you can park at the lot near Maranatha Church and take Sideshow westbound or the paved path. There are also numerous drop in points along the way, one of the more popular being the corner of Silver Springs Blvd and 54 Ave NW.
