Schacher provides the first “up” singletrack for Mt 7. It was built with cross country riders in mind. Put it in low gear and enjoy the climb. Scope the berms, bridges and jumps as you wind up Schacher through tall timber. You’ll be hammering these on the return ride if you choose to retrace your route. There is an optional ride around for all jumps and other TTFs.

In 2018 Schacher was completed to the top. It can be viewed as 2 sections. The first section from the bottom rides up singletrack for 4km to where it crosses the Mt 7 (Bowle-Evans Rd). It then continues for another 11km (all singletrack) to the top at the Mt 7 Launch Site for a total of 15km. Climbing up, the grade of the lower section has a bit of spunk, however, the grade of the upper section eases back a bit with plenty of brief coasting sections thrown in to give you a short break from pedaling.

Note that just before you come to the end of the lower section as you climb up, the trail branches (at a skinny). The right hand fork is B52 (signed) and it goes for a short, fun run over to the entrance of the DH trail “5 K”. Otherwise the left fork continues for 100m to the Mt 7 Rd and the start of the Schacher upper section.

Local family man Sean Schacher was the inspiration for this trail, and it was the drive of local familyman/good-guy-with-superhero-powers Jeremy Harris who made it happen. Both of these 2 local riders now ride along in spirit with you on this ride.

Access Info

Currently the Schacher starts approximately 2.2km up the Mt 7 Rd (Bowle-Evans Rd). You can link together 7 Up, Bush Party and Woodlot Ride if you wish to avoid much of the road on the way to this point.
