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.

No trees down - clear and dry! Great trail. Gets the heart pumping on this one.

More or less dry and tons of fun. Downed tree on the trail but it’s low enough to hop or just step over.

Perfect summer conditions, a little dusty in places.

Dry, but a bit brushed in at spots. East to West is definitely a harder direction, if that's what you're looking for.

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