Part of the Elk Valley / TransCanada Trail; Snoop Lion is a mellow singletrack experience that is very well built, with fun little bridges, some big swoopy switchbacks, alternating between open vistas and dark forest.

All sorts of options if you head out this way - keep going onto Branch H and Smooth Salamander for a solid XC ride, keep going even further beyond on the Trans Canada, or do a loop on one of these steeps like 48 Hours or Three Kings, or cut it short and head down South Castle when you get there.

Access Info

Climb Roots from River Road and at the first clearing look for the signpost on the right for the Elk Valley Trail.
