Cruisy singletrack cross country trail on the edge of the Tunnel Mountain bench that provides great views of the Bow Valley. Trail rides great in both directions but it faster and arguably more fun when ridden West to East. Although this is a beginner friendly trail with sections of intermediate difficulty, there are exposed sections that may unnerve beginner riders. Trail is part of the Tunnel Bench loop with "The Spine" and Teddybears Picnic."

       While technically fairly easy, many sections ride very close to the edge of the bench (aka falling off tunnel mountain). Not recommend for young or unsteady riders or anyone afraid of heights.

       Beware that a short section of the trail has been modified towards the end if travelling CW. It is substantially more challenging, steep, narrow, on a side slope. Sorta ruins it for the novice rider, maybe winter riding.

       A good beginner trail where you can start to focus on your flow and not just on pedaling. It's a fun way to get off the multi use trails and start to experience the corners rocks and roots that mountainbiking has to offer.

       A bypass around the new and substantially more challenging section has been constructed. It will be nicer in the winter. Thanks!

       Rode Coastline last week and it's in great shape. The new optional line known as High Rollers is a blast!
