One of the newer trails in Hinton, Rock Band utilizes a raised band of rock for easy building on a slight grade descent with a few drop features and tight downhills. Built in 2016 with the boardwalk across the swamp finished in 2017. One of the best DH runs in Hinton though it's really short.Work will continue on the exposed rocks and to berm-in the corners.

Rock Band continues onto Happy Creek East side, go to the right at the fork to go back to the main town trail. Go left to continue onto Happy Creek and the greater trail system. Happy Creek.

 A nice short but sweet technical decent from the gravel pit into the wet stuff. If your fully commiting to happy creek from the top bring rubber boots! Extremely wet in the middle section
