The first trail in Rossland built by the "Church of Dirt" volunteer trail maintenance group, Drifter is a very easy trail that retains a true "singletrack" feel. Can be ridden as a loop with Moe's, or used to as an access trail to or from Redtop. An instant classic for the push-bike crowd, and the perfect intro to trail riding. The riding time statistics are skewed due to it's close proximity to Centennial Trail.

Access Info

Accessed via Lower Centennial Trail, from either the North or South.
