One of the original Fernie trails. Not quite as Rooty and unpleasant as the name might suggest - average climb off of Montane up to Hypervent junction with Uprooted. World class fun as a downhill especially if you keep going down onto Montane.

Section between River Road and Snoop Lion is part of the Elk Valley / TransCanada Trail.

Access Info

Either off of Montane of bottom of Hypervent.
