This trail is a classic single-track mountain bike trail providing steep descents and technical sections mixed up with some short punchy climbs and optional stunts. It provides great viewpoints looking east over Christina Lake. This is a Blue trail by Kootenay standards, so watch yourself. There are some technical rock gardens you don't want to be going too fast into as well as the odd blind corner or loose rock.

Access Info

Follow Hwy 3 west towards Grand Forks. Just after the Hwy 395, turn right onto Stewart Creek Rd. Follow for 9.6 km where there is a small pullout and the trailhead for Spooner Creek Trail. The trail descends from here down to West Lake Dr.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
