Machine built multi-directional multi-use trail. To ride clockwise head behind ski hill lodge. To ride counter clockwise head to far side of t-bar. Good drainage and doesn't get muddy after it rains. This trail is mainly in the trees so you're in the shade most of the day. The trail climbs steady with a few bridge crossing and switchbacks. It comes out of the trees with a short section on the west run and then back into the tree. The trail is often referred to as Sunset east and west, depending on which side of the creek you are on. Easiest to ride up clockwise but can be ridden in either direction. Multi-use so please watch for hikers as well as bikers. Joins up with Sunrise and provides access to lower Inducer.

Access Info

Drive 1 km east of Salmo on Highway 3, turn right on Ski Hill Road. Starts behind the bottom of the tee bar.

       Easy climb. Folks with reasonable fitness wont use their granny gear on this mellow and scenic climb trail
