An enjoyable trail for beginners and experienced riders. Kaya is a fun way to climb up and access the lower trails on the west side of Galbraith, but riding down is even more fun. The trail flows smoothly through forest and meadow, and has a few little features to enjoy. With new drainage work just completed at the bottom, Kaya is now in the best shape it has ever been in.

Access Info

To access the bottom of Kaya, go up the Pipeline Road (1000) from the "H" kiosk and take a left at the first road intersection. Continue down Road 1100 for about a hundred meters and look for the trailhead marker on your right (might be marked Hop Scotch). The top of the trail is accessed via Bunny Trails / Art's Trail via the Pipeline Road.
