A decent little urban single track that rolls up and down along the slopes of the Edgemont escarpment. It makes a useful add on to a Nose Hill ride, especially if pedalling over from areas to the west. The east leg along Shaganappi could use more traffic to keep the tall grass beaten down, but the bulk of the trail is well used, mainly by dog walkers I would guess.

Access Info

There are numerous entry points from Edgemont on side trails, and easy access from Nose Hill across from the SW corner, and from just below the top Nose Hill parking lot. (look across Shaganappi for gap in fence).

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!


This is a long standing route, for the most part well used by local residents, but as far as I know is not an officially sanctioned trail.
