Beginning at the top of the road near the High Roller trailhead, "The Craig" is built as a hybrid of machine and hand building techniques with the intent of having a hand built feel to add variety to our trail system.

A significant amount of rock was brought into the site to create something truly unique to what we currently offer. The trail terminates at the Turducken staging area.

The trail is named after our fallen friend Everett Craig. Everett was a true supporter of the trail system and encouraged others to do the same whenever possible.

You will find a special feature on this trail that is just as unique as he was and we thank his family and friends for helping to make it happen. We hope you enjoy it.

Built by Andreas Thoni and Robson Energy Services.
