Is a mostly hand built XC trail and a crowd favourite. It begins right at the bottom of the Silver Queen chairlift and follows the actual BX Creek for the first 500m roughly. There is great variation and elevation gain and loss on this trail while it winds its way through much of our Nordic ski area before it meets up with Mtn. View XC trail. Those looking for a longer loop can continue out to Corkscrew via Sidewinder or Grizzly Adams.

Access Info

Access just across the bridge at the bottom of Silver Queen chairlift.

       BX Creek down with Chakra return is a great loop. Finding the trailhead for these trails is the hard part. Head to Tubetown and you will pick up the signs to BX Creek and Meadow.
