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 the backside. Shuttle vehicles are required and the 4x4 road may not always be accessible.

From the back side drop off, there is a loose and wet quad trail that eventually dead ends, from there, the rest of the climb is bushwacking a steep grade through tight trees until you get onto the ridge. Following the ridge heading towards the folding mountain peak on loose rocky double track. Once at the peak, tricky down climbing is required through the steep scree. The rest is mostly typical boot-packed hiking trail through a mix of steep rocky technical sections, understory single-track, tight willow sections, steep rooty sections, fallen trees and other hazards.

This unsanctioned trail is not supported by any local trail associations. Planning, navigation, bear spray, survival pack, 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!
