From Goat Ck the first few KM's are quite muddy, the trail does get drier so don't quit.

No evidence of bear activity but we did come across two cyclists with very poor trail etiquette. Is it to much to ask to say "on your left" when...

Black bear cub and mama crossed our path 1.5 km from Canmore side. They scampered off pretty quick as we made a lot of noise and were in a group of 8.

 Just rode this trail for the first time today. Snow conditions incredibly poor! 4” of sugar and no base. Brutal ride, barely made it out alive!!
