Warning: This is not a bike trail.
Careful research, preparation and navigation are needed. This uses the folding mountain hiking trail accessed by a steep hike-a-bike climb from highway 16 and the Folding Mountain Brewery. Watch for hikers!!!
Many trail types encountered including single-track, tight willow sections, steep rocky sections, steep rooty sections, drop away ridge lines. Scope out any ridge lines, scree rides and technical sections first before trying to ride. There are always fallen trees and other hazards
This unsanctioned trail is not supported by any local trail associations. Planning, navigation, bear spray, survival pack, cellphone/tracking, expert level riding skills and fitness required. If this is you, expect a rewarding but surprisingly quick ride with amazing views, wildlife, challenging technical riding and one of the few rides of it's kind in Alberta.
This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
