The main route to the McGillivray Lake Cabin and the easiest climb. Dogs are allowed on leash between the Nordic Centre and the Whiskey Jack turnoff. Skiers with dogs must then leave McGillivray Lake trail and stay on Whiskey Jack until it re-joins McGillivray Lake Trail, where they can continue with dogs off leash to the McGillivray Lake Cabin and/or the Raven Ramble/Raven Return dog loop.

Please note, this is a multi-use trail that is shared with fat bikes.

      Pretty mellow double track, we took the black bear shortcut back to the main trail. Black bear had muddy sections, main trail was tacky with some...
