 This is a blue trail, but in some spots, there is a huge drop off into the river right beside the trail. Just walk the trail before you ride it so you know what you are getting into.

 Yup. This is an intermediate trail. Unless you get caught looking at the Edmonton skyline, then you might end up on an expert downhill into the North Saskatchewan.
