CBT Mainline Details
The popularity of CBT Mainline has lead to it becoming the backbone for a number of other trails branching off it creating the CBT Mainline trail network. With a minimal grade this trail climbs as well as it descends, making it one of the most ridden trails in Golden.
CBT is most commonly ridden from the CBT Mainline Trailhead parking area. It climbs up gently over numerous natural benches to the Tallis Forest Service Road and Cedar Lake. Several trails easily accessed off of CBT provide numerous riding options. Along CBT itself, riders will enjoy the smooth, gradual climb with occasional opportunity to sprint short sections of the trail. Of particular note, the sections of CBT traversing north-south on either side of the BC Hydro Powerline (shown on the map) are especially worth gearing in to middle ring. If ridden at fast speeds, these tight winding, sections will give you the feeling of flying a podrunner. Make noise! Let on coming traffic know your presence.
Trailhead is located at the Mainline trailhead, west of the bridge over the Columbia River at the junction of the Golf Course Drive and the KHMR road. An alternate trailhead is located at Cedar Lake Rec Site 2 km up the Tallis FSR. Both trailheads have vault toilets, map kiosks and donation boxes.
