From the intersection with Cornhill Trail and Woolybutt Trail, or from the top of Trigger Happy Trail, the Medusa winds and climbs a steep but rewarding section of single track to bring you out just before the summit of Corn Hill.

Stop and enjoy the views on the way up, then enjoy the descents of either Misty Twist or Clancy's Run on the way back downhill.
