The Raft Rim trail was built in 2019 to access the canyon edge high above Raft River. CAUTION exposure to cliff edges along the rim section - ride in control
The trail connects upper and lower Sweet Jane to create a loop. So many reasons to ride this trail - views, old growth forests, cool rocks, fun features, fast descending, and bits of technical challenge on the climb. Its a great ride in both directions. If you are looking for an easier climb use Sweet Jane.
Link top to bottom descent from Brain Shake to Greasy Jungle to Raft Rim.
The Wells Gray Outdoors club is very proud of this trail - enjoy
Build by Rev Trails and Cals Corner.

Access Info

Park at lower parking area 2 km Rd 9 or via Ridge Trail from Candle Creek parking area.

      Gorgeous!!! This might be my favorite in the Candle Creek system now! Do be wary of the cliffs though, they're not kidding, there's a serious fall...

       Apprehensive blue level riders may want to walk the rim portion the first time through. The trail is not technically challenging but the cliff edge can be intimidating in one spot. The trail features many small fun rollers you can pop off, a really fun decent and a surprisingly nice climb as well.
