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.

The entrance off the meadow is deep snow and rutted initially but smoothes out by the time you reach the intersection with the coal chutes....

super dry, but not epically dusty or loose.

Fun! Hardly feels like a climb. Almost feels like a pump track in some sections.
