North Star Details
This is a fast and flowy trail that rides in a north-south direction for 3.8 km. It is best value if ridden to towards the south. North Star is generally a forested trail, but occasionally opens up and travels on a ridge where one can glimpse the Purcell Mountains and Second Cedar Lake. Along with fast sections, there are some short and punchy climbs that are rewarded with quick engaging descents and railing corners.
There are a couple of intersections along the way. If riding from the north entrance, there is one intersection in particular, at the 1km point, that rides more naturally into the Cedar Snag Trail. However, stay hard left to if you want to continue on “North Star”.
At the south end of North Star, the trail naturally flows into your choice of a few short connector trails that link up with many other excellent trails in that area such as Devil’s Slide, Moonraker, and Arrowhead. Pick one and head to the Canyon Creek lower lookout for a view of the canyon.
The trail begins about 300 m up the Tallis FSR from the Moonraker trailhead.
