Hinton's signature trail and maintained by HMBA. This trail is the local favourite for biking, running and hiking. Lots of flow both ways and climbs and downs each direction. A must do in Hinton. Also used as the main access to the other trails in the net work.

reporter Riding really well, finally dry after some solid rain. Watch out for some of the bridges that are in disrepair.

 Title and description reads true. Puts a smile on my face any time from any direction. Great for all skill levels. Busy on weekends during the summer months with nice weather. Groups of hikers sure to be around any bend. Evenings and weekdays are best
