This section of trail has an interesting history...originally started by the DNV Trail Crew in 2010 as the final funds were running out from the Federal Stimulus grant, the work was completed by the NSMBA with support from Lynn Valley Bikes to attempt to connect to Dreamweaver/Skid Rd. Arc'teryx finally connected to DW/Skid Rd in 2013 as this project lay dormant - no one could figure out how to connect this to the eventual goal of reaching Mt Fromme Hwy. Two of the corners have been recently re-aligned to lessen grade. This trail is primarily a climbing route but also serves as a descent to return to St. Mary's/Braemar zone. As it is two way, please watch for traffic in both directions. Courtesy has right of way and as per the original vision, uphill traffic takes precedence. Ride in control and look ahead.
