As the primary climb up the east side of Conkle, this trail gets a fair bit of traffic and maintenance. Grades are forgiving and the views get more spectacular as the elevation increases. Includes two "false summits" before ascending to the top ridge and a choice of descents. It can also be used as a descent, but isn't recommended, as you're likely to meet lots of riders and hikers coming up.

The name is a reference to the legendary naked hiking guy who used to be seen often on this trail.

Access Info

Good parking is available just off Bathville between the rodeo grounds and the Steam Train station (west trailhead) -- please use this lot if you can. Parking at the end of Fenwick has caused congestion and issues with neighbours, so avoid it if possible.

      reporter The trail might still have some deep thawing to do, but is in excellent shape right now. One short muddy bit near the top that was firming up already.

      I went out early when it was cold to check conditions. There is significant freeze-thaw. Riders should hold off. Next week's warm weather...
