Snakes and Ladders is one of the few trails at The Woodlot that still includes a few ladders and even a teeter totter on its path. It is an intermediate technical trail with lots of dirt, a few ladders over creeks and a few fun somewhat technical rock faces. There are a few smaller jumps on the trail but nothing too large and every hard feature has an easy ride around.

The trail traverses the lower 1/3rd of the area and uses the land well rather than going straight down the hill. The end of the trail links up to the Trans Canada Trail. If you head east, you head towards the powerlines and Rolley Lake, head west back towards the main road up and Shotgun.

This is a 100% legitimate trail that is recognized by MoTSA

Access Info

Access the trail off the main road up to the powerlines.

There is a bridge out half way down the trail after the long log ride. The builder will address this issue soon. Broken wood/ttf structure

Most of the rung needed for the bridge off the road has been split and moved to the creek at the top. All that is needed is a handful more rung...
