This trail connects Edworthy Park to Paskapoo slopes (via a pedestrian underpass of Sarcee Trail) . Each end starts off with an easy flat doubletrack adjacent to the railroad, but the middle section is narrow singletrack with a decent 60 climb and a some root gnarl in the trail. Near the midpoint the single track pops out to the near railroad but then goes back into the bush immediately. The entire trail is on the south side of the rail tracks and does not cross the tracks at any time. Mutil use in the city, so watch for dog walkers and hikers.

Access Info

Edworthy park at one end, Pedestrian underpass to Bowdale crescent at the other end.

 Dry. Overgrown in sections making the trail narrow. Watch out for makeshift crossings across mostly dry creek beds.

 Great on the fat bike.
Snow covered lots of bite.
