Snowy Shortcut is a winding singletrack through the trees that bypasses the clearcut sections of the west end of Snowy Owl. It's not a built trail the way the rest of the West Bragg singletrack is - the alders and some branches were cut back, and if the snowpack is thin, it's a bit bumpy.

Access Info

North access is from the junction of Snowy Owl and the Mountain Road.
South access is from the junction of Snowy Owl near the West Crystal Line XC ski trail.
