The Cemetery trail is one of the classic intermediate rides in the KCTS network and the perfect introduction into Kootenay-style riding. The delightful singletrack is fast and flowy, a little rooty and rocky, but mostly, smooth, swoopy, twisting, half-bermed stimulation, that will have you tingling in delight. The Cemetery trail is one of the original KCTS cross country trails, which has seen numerous changes over the years, but still contains an imperceptible trace of uphill pedaling and a narrow corridor to control speed. Today, its a lovely blend of x-country and all mountain riding, on a warm, southern aspect.

A few snow patches but all can be ridden through. Large tree blocking trail still, just below the little gap jump and above the Happy Valley turnoff.
