Baby-baby, fries and gravy, this is a fun trail along the Fort Saskatchewan River. The trail is flowy, fast and interesting. Keeps you thinking about "what could be next"? Watch out for sections that are close to the river, at high water, these are a bit sketchy. There are features and zig-zags with punchy up-n-downs. Good intermediate level ride.

Extremely muddy and wet. With good weather this week it should be dried up enough to ride next week (April 30).

Nice packed, grippy snow with the occasional section of ice (can be walked around).

One section has pretty much collapsed (closer to the boat launch side) as well as one that looks like its about to. Definite hike-a-bike for those.

A bit of erosion on one section which makes it a bit tricky. Otherwise all clear and dry.

 Trails were firm around 11AM, then got really greasy about an hour later.

 Trail is in great condition. Now that school is out there seem to be more kids on them. Use your bell
