Continues along the ridge top to the popular viewpoint shown on the map. It then descends and climbs up to another summit and the Sugar Daddy junction. It then continues down to the Snowy Owl junction, crosses Elbow and Iron Creek ski trails and ends at the Boundary Ridge junction. Ranger-Strange Brew-Boundary Ridge is a popular loop (Goldilocks).

Strange Brew is groomed in Winter if necessary but generally left ungroomed so that riders doing Goldilocks can have a powder filled descent.

This trail has a great mix of flowy berms, with some rooty/rocky sections thrown in too. It is a 2 way trail, but most people ride down it.
