       CONGRATULATIONS for a job well done!!!! This trail is perfect for the novice and single track shy rider, yet it offers a great cardio workout coupled with a high fun factor with lots of up and down coasting. The sandy surface is very smooth. The trail is wide making sharp turns forgiving. I would highly recommend that trail.

       Walked the trail today (21 May 201Cool @ 26C

      It took 1h 16m from the parking area just off the TransCanada. I stayed on the trail. If you cut across the scrub you can save quite a bit of time. I'm not sure it that is encouraged.

      Once you get to the end the views or Echo Dale were very nice.

      Most of the people on the trail were on mountain bikes.

       Really awesome trail! Flows well and has something for everyone. Great warm up / cool down for the Redcliff network.
