This is a ride of different sections. Start by staying right from the top unless you want some serious drops as you head down through the forest. You quickly hit the river wash-out area, with various options in terms of trail. Lots of rocks, little drops and river-bed type riding. Once out of that you hit a super flowy section through a cut block with lefts and rights that brings you to the power line. Head straight across and you have a short uphill section that takes you to the roller coaster - little flat sections followed by sudden downs. Super -fun and exhilarating. Watch out for the Lazy Lizard crossing further down - most people now jump onto that to complete the down.

Access Info

Via Project 9 access trail - look for a yellow gate on your left of the Island Lake Road, Project 9 signs on a post next to it.

      Bluff charged by a cow moose near the power line on the way up. Friends saw her and a calf earlier in the week.

      Moose on the loose! Trails in great condition but ran into a cow moose and calf on the down just past the power line. Make noise and be safe

       We stopped in Fernie on a little road trip. Some locals recommended Project 9 and now we know why. We are from the North Shore and this trail was definitely North Shore style. Super fun and flowy with the perfect balance of roots.
      And the views were spectacular!
      We had an obligatory stop at Fernie Brewing Co. and celebrated the ride with a Project 9 Pilsner!

       Blue trail, definitely not black. Mellow enough that it would be appropriate for a new rider. Pretty flat so more of a high speed burner, roots for trail interest. Fun roller section near the bottom but overall kinda meh
