This trail follows the rocky sidehill below the Alberta Summer Games trail. The steep rocky chutes at the north end of it lead to a switchback turn then along the rocky ridge below Alberta Summer Games. There are three alternate lines to descend the rocky cliff, plus an easier access trail.

Access Info

Trailhead: Vehicle parking is available by the Skills Park/Albert Stella Arena located at the bottom of the Pass Powderkeg ski hill. This trail can be reached via the other trails in the riding area. It is near the top of Berma-Grin and the north end of Alberta Summer Games trail. The trail exits on to Double Dirt Spresso.
Caution: the ski hill road is gated but is usually open until around 3 pm on weekdays during the summer. Do not park above the gates if you expect to return after 3 pm.
