Part of the 12 Mile Coulee area in the community of Tuscany, in Calgary's NW. This trail is South facing and runs East - West along the the old Bow River valley slopes similar to the Bowmont Singletrack. The route follows the cliff side and has some roller coasters on the west end of the trail. Because the trail is South facing it tends to dry out earlier in the spring and is a little warmer in the fall. Combining this trail with the 12 mile coulee creates a nice out and back circuit after work or when you're looking to fit in a quick single track ride.

Access Info

On the East side of the trail, turn 1/2 way up the steep part of the 12 mile coulee trail near nose hill drive. You'll see the trail start near the man hole/storm cover on the hill side. On the West side you'll find the trail head 20m before a turn off into the Home Depot.
