This is a hiking trail that connects Burnside Lake to the Charity Valley Trail. Only the northern part is rideable up. The southern half is technical to ride down and almost all hike-a-bike on the way up. The only reason to do this trail is to connect to Charity Valley and beyond.

      All clear as of second week in June. One short section on lower part (Charity Valley trail) is hard to follow due to fire.
