Probably the most-used trail at the Canmore Nordic Centre, and part of many race routes. It's 99% singletrack through forest and meadows, with many climbs and descents. Rooty sections, rocky sections and smooth sections - it has everything

Access Info

Most riders start on EKG East and keep rolling on EKG in a clockwise direction from the stadium area, but it can be done in either direction.
