This is an easy beginner trail that is 1.2 meters wide that climbs at 3 - 5 % from the Chief Isadore Rail Trail to the Kettle Lake parking lot. The lower part of the trail can also be linked with Elephant Run to make can also be linked with Elephant Run to make a nice 3.8 km beginner loop.

Makes for a great first ever downhill run.

 You can't go wrong with this trail, takes no effort to get to kettle lake and is the exact trail I take beginners for their first ride.
