Braggin Rights is a fun bit of singletrack that leads out to connections with the south end of Long Distance, and Merlin View, Reconnect, Telephone Loop. It's a full bench cut that twists and turns all the way out to the junction with Merlin. The climbs and descents are very much like all the other West Bragg trails. Note that there is a LOT of two-way traffic between the parking lot and the junction with Long Distance. Expect to see dogs, strollers, families walking with little kids, runners, etc., especially in that first section. If you want some alone-time, go very early or very late in the day.

Access Info

This trail can be accessed from the NW corner of the main parking lot.

Great conditions considering the recent snow fall. Currently wet, muddy, snowy, icy, tacky, and dry. Totally doable on a skinny bike. Didn’t...

 We ran across a black bear and her brown coloured cub this evening at about 6:45pm. They were on the edge of the trail approximately 500 meters up from the intersection with White Tail (100 meters up from the cut line). Mom and cub ran quite a way down the trail before heading off up the slope towards long distance. Make sure you have your bear spray! Trail was dry, dusty and fast.

 Road up Braggin to Merlin Loop. Totally doable on skinny bike; might be more work than it’s worth on a fat bike. All the snow/ice sections (which are mostly on Braggin) were rideable. Prepare to get very wet and dirty!
