Extremely technical riding, with deep ruts, large roots, and technical rock gardens. A great section of trail for those looking for adventure. The trail ends at Jaques lake, a great place to enjoy the views and relax for a bit or camp out.

Access Info

Take Maligne Lake Road to the Jaques Lake trailhead and parking near the south end of Medicine Lake

       I only rode the first km or two of this trail and there is a reason it's listed as a black trail. Its extremely technical... We had a difficult time getting over some stuff while heading uphill but coming back down we were punching over all the features pretty well. It is diffucult though and you need to choose your line very well. I would advise only for quite
      experienced technical riders.
