This is another classic trail and is one of the upper most trails in the Moonraker trail network. It is generally best ridden in a south direction (otherwise it is a rooted climb). Starting from the Cedar Lake Trailhead ride up the Talus Road for approximately 300 meters, here the best option is too take the North Star entrance. After approximately 100m on North Star turn sharp right at the signed junction onto Cedar Snag. Climb up to the top end of Cedar Snag and turn left (south) at the the next signed junction to continue along Cedar Snag.

The next section of the trail starts off fast, and is a tad rooty and technical. Eventually the trail will smooth out and become one of the funnest sections of trails in the Moonraker system. You will find yourself charging through forest, along subtle ridges, diving in and out of corners, and ripping by Third and Fourth Cedar Lakes.

Access Info

There are three connections off the North Star trail, two in the north and one in the south.
