  • Global Ranking

This multi-use trail starts behind the Chateau Lake Louise as a double track for the first third. It then keeps narrowing into a increasingly enjoyable winding singletrack. There's one section of sustained wide downhill through scattered rocks that might make it a black but appart from that this is a blue trail. Ending at Ross lake and the views of the valley makes for an overall good ride.

Access Info

You go up to the trailhead right behind the Chateau Lake Louise.
