       Mostly bush ride - a few rocky sections - fun to connect with valley of five lakes for a big day

       We only rode the section of this trail between trail 9a, but it was fantastic. Big climb up and nice decent back down on the section we rode. It is quite technical though. The black rating is justified.

       Definitely one of my favourite trails in Jasper! Love it all the way to OFP or as a clockwise loop.
