The original line on Fox Mountain . This XC epic will tour you through the majority of the Fox network, through gullies, along ridge crests and open forests. You'll catch some amazing views of Williams Lake and the valley on this trail, which takes some folks an hour, others 4 hours. Either way its going to be a good ride. Start by climbing Skyline or powerline that paralells it from the gasline off tower crescent at water towers.If on skyline watch for left turn with yellow arrow and signage to powerline below. Once on the power line track , go through the first big gully and you'll see the trailhead at top. The climb is simply sublime. The first trail crossing you'll see is Fox Rocks which you can take to get to the Kiosk at the end of Mason Road to get yourself oriented for the ride. Trail follows ridge over the lake and drops down and returns back to town on sidehill. Trail end is private property that you must detour above by hanging a right on lower dogbone and onto the "Goat" to return to start. Enjoy.

      Old Goat section needs some maintenance: some sloughing and sliding sections made it a little hairy for this old goat.

       This trail has now been edited in keeping with the wishes of the original builder. It follows the original "Classic" Fox line from the bottom of the Fox "Classic" Climb, along the ridge, through the gulley, then exits onto Tower Crescent via the "Old Goat" section. It retains its name throughout its entire length. The original exit route to Maranatha School (Now Labelled "Jimmy's Fox (Lower)) is now closed due to Private Property conflicts.

       Top of climb was impacted by logging but is now clear and rideable. Bottom had some snow, ice and mud and now a bigass tree i guess.

       The section at top that parallells mason road has been cleared of logging debris. A parking lot at end of mason is in the works due to unthoughtfull hikers/shuttlers blocking private driveways.

       Large tree down across the trail about 50 m uphill from the recently cleared trees on the uphill section below Mason Road.
