Typical river's edge trail - jumbly, with off-camber turns and potholes that take time to dry after rain. It's not really technical but still difficult to get a flow going. If southbound, once you reach the slide area of the former Keillor Road, do not try to follow the river to link with the Fox Drive trail. Climb instead to a mid-level trail.

       I think this is a pretty cool, underrated trail. Do Raven first in to this and it’s a great ride. Lots of techy climbs and descents akin to rock gardens... without the rocks. Very unique arid terrain you won’t see much of in Edmonton. Definitely susceptible to rain though. Essentially becomes mud flats until it dries out.
