A short, fun connector trail from EKG and George Town Interpretive to the Canmore Trail. It flows well in both directions and features a couple of wide, low bridges and a short section of baby head rocks.

Pretty wet. Must have a fat bike in the pm when it’s warm. Not the best biking conditions.

Thin layer of snow over ice in a lot of places. Rideable without studs, but watch out in the corners.

Nicer to ride in winter than summer.
