An alternative route to the long hike-a-bike up Powerline going west to east. This trail can be ridden either direction but is a more technical downhill than staying on the Powerline road. Best done climbing up towards the Nemo/Grumpy junction (west to east).

There is a short push right at the top to get back on the Powerline road, but everything else is rideable.

Access Info

Parallel to the Powerline Road -- look for the groomed trail peeling off the road on the north side.

Disclaimer

Seasonal route — snow conditions permitting.
