Built by the Church of Dirt volunteer build crew, this trail has quickly become a year round favourite. It is a great progressive trail from beginner to intermediate. It rides well in both directions and provides loop options on Monte Christo Mountain. The climb from Kootenay Columbia to Snake is tougher than the Drifter to Snake climb.
