Fast, fun, and natural flowy trail. The grass makes it fast and smooth and the steepness and turns make it super fun!

Multiple lines are available, but watch out for big and natural ruts that can slow you down. Also watch out for some hikers and dog walkers.
This trail leads to a granular path.

Walk up the trail or bike up the road to get back to the trail head.

Access Info

Large rock marks the trail head. Broken sign saying, "Raytel Equipment Calgary" is at the trail head.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
