The newest trail in the Pass Powderkeg network provides an alternative route up to or down from the top of the Pass Powderkeg hill. With mixed forested and open terrain, this trail is very scenic and offers great views towards the Continental Divide. Combined with some of the existing trails, it makes a 12 km loop.
The trail has great flow, with many bermed corners and optional jumps.
The top of the trail has two options - the easy route shown on the GPS track, and a steeper rougher line down the ridge which is shown as a separate trail called Buck 50 Option.
The bottom end of the trail takes off from Little Shred Riding Hood on the pipeline ROW. The top starts at the top of the T-Bar where Chainsaw Massacre ends.
There are alternate access points along the trail:
- east end of Southmore Place accessed via 119 St. Blairmore
- alley west of 113 St. Blairmore at the north end of the trail named Buck 50 Connector to 113 St.
- from the mid-point of Buck 50 a cut line heads east to the Ski Hill parking lot.
