As you ride this astonishing trail dug by hand into the side hill of Mount Fernie, high above the tree line, just consider how much work it took to build this masterpiece. Plenty of exposure in areas, but it is a great trail, especially if you ride it round and beyond Slunt. Views out to the Lizard Range, alpine flowers, it's got it all. The section beyond Slunt is tough climbing.
