    Municipality of Crowsnest Pass

Most often ridden downhill, it is fast, flowy, rocky, bermy, jumpy, pumpy, with a few sections where you have to work if you want to maintain the high speed. Steep sections, climbs, roots, rolling fast bits, doubles, optional jumps, turns. Combined with some of the existing trails, it makes a 12 km loop.

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.

Access Info

The top starts at the top of the T-Bar where Chainsaw Massacre ends. The bottom end of the trail takes off from Little Shred Riding Hood on the pipeline ROW.

There are alternate access points along the trail:
- 75 Cents connecting the Ski Hill parking area to the mid point of Buck 50
- 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.

Disclaimer

Most traffic is downhill and can be at high speed, so if you are going up the trail be careful and avoid the most popular times - afternoons on Saturday and Sunday. No shuttling on the ski hill.
