Trail is clear of obstacles, a few ruts and dampness in the heavily treed areas. Otherwise dry, fast and a lot of fun.

The trail is dry and still pretty much pristine all the way to Kananaskis Lakes. Quite the amazing job of trail building.

 The trail starts on the south side of the Sawmill trail head access road, just as it enters the parking area. After a bit of a dull climb at the start, your in for a long, fun downhill run.
