Razors Edge Details
An incredible trail with stellar views and exciting terrain that puts it in a class of its own. Razors Edge is like no other ride in the Bow Valley. It’s a BIG all mountain trail that utilizes the distinct and rugged terrain found in Quaite Valley. Accessible via Quaite Valley and Prairie View, Razors starts innocently enough. The first section of undulating singletrack running along a bench cut is one of the easier sections to navigate on this ride. Ascending gradually out of the thick forest and up to the first of many ridge lines, the trail only gets more intense. On the way up you’ll be greeted with short, but steep sections of slab; while climbing and descending. Once on the ridge, the riding gets very technical. The narrow sections of ridge made up of rock, boulders and slab will keep one on their toes, while the descents down the longer sections of slab foretell of the riding yet to come.
What makes this ride so unique is the final section of exposed, steep and open ridge which will take you down lengthy sections of slab towards the highway. Expect long and steep sections of slab and in some cases very loose rocks. Incredible views of the surrounding mountains and valley below make this ride not only scenic, but spectacular. The trail builder has really nailed it with this trail, offering something for the more advanced rider that currently does not compare to any other rides in the Bow Valley.
