Selkirk Slacker Details
Where the town ends at the top of the gravel pit, and the forestry roads take you into the wilderness, Selkirk Slacker will be your entry point into the Mountain Shadows noodle bowl of trails. On this trail you’ll find smooth flow with a bit of climbing.
Selkirk Slacker starts off fairly flat and flowy. Then after a short descent, it heads south and begins to gain elevation crossing the Snake Hill downhill trail - Look uphill! It then continues crossing over Roller Coaster and Chute the Duck. It’s reasonable to climb up Chute the Duck, but it’s steep. Make noise to let those coming down know you’re there. Alternatively, turning down Chute the Duck leads down to the Reflection Lake road, but it is not great for bikes. Selkirk Slacker eventually flows naturally into Reflection Lake Trail to continue to the Powerline. Now your warm up is over!
Selkirk Slacker is also a fun descent on your return, letting you enjoy riding your bike and not just squeezing the brakes!
From Reflection Lake Trailhead ride uphill for 200m on the gravel road passing the rodeo grounds on your right. At the 200m point, you will see a signed entrance for the singletrack trail Rodeo Drive. Take Rodeo Drive all the way up to a 4 way junction at a gravel road. The signed entrance to Selkirk Slacker will be just to your right.
