Alpine trail off the top of the Kicking Horse Mtn Resort, so you'll need to buy a pass for the gondola. Involves a whole bunch of steep exposed hike-a-bike sections. Some exposed riding, remote locations and path finding. No signage present. A bit tricky to find the final route on the logging road over to LSD.

This is not a bike park trail

      Overall great condition. One tree half fallen not long before you exit the woods at the end. You’ll only have to duck for now, but a chainsaw...

      Trail is in great shape, route finding is easy. Eroded in some of the more loose dusty tight switchbacks, but can hardly call it an issue for this...
