Very tough connector trail that allows you to skip the unrideable section of Lactic Ridge, scoot over to the Moccasin Trail, back up and round to the start of Lactic Ridge and Slunt. Totally rideable, but not easy the summer months bring an extra challenge: all along the uphill side the nettles reach out and brush your uphill arm, stinging the crap out of you. Try to move away as you ride and you fall down Mount Fernie. Killer views and you ride through two avi chutes so the snow can hang around a little longer on this one.

Look for the sign as you head up Lactic Ridge

      Trail has had its annual haircut. Good sight lines again and no more stinging nettles!

      Wow, so grown in that the bushes drag me to an even slower pace than usual. Also really dry loose soil. Still, all rideable if you've got the gas.

      The trail is heavily grown in, needs some brush work. Would recommend just grunting lactic the whole way instead

      Growing in by the minute! At times very narrow. Makes for difficult sight lines
