A tight winding trail up and down the Fort Edmonton hillsides through a Birch forest. This trail is not for the weak at heart, it features many successive punchy climbs and tight turns. The eastern end will test your heart and leg muscles to the max. Be sure not to miss the road crossing into the final cool-down on the western end of the trail that leads to the Fort Edmonton Footbridge.

Disclaimer

This trail features many hard punchy climbs.

 One of my favorites in our neck of the woods. Take the east section back up for a real challenge.

 Why are so many of Edmonton trails photos flooded with selfies and bike pics from boyblue(Alain)?

 With the internet the narcissist cream rises to the top. It's too bad because other people's content gets pushed off of the page

 It sucks to have so many pictures that are useless to actually showing the trail.. Unfortunately it would be a huge pain to have mods remove them all one by one.
