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.

Great winter conditions. A little narrow in spots because there is mostly walking traffic.

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