This trail provides an easy single-track climb to the top of Whistling Post. By connecting to Toad Stool on the other side of the Pipeline Connector East, it is the most direct route to the top of Sooper Trooper, and also a good way to get to School of Rock, Squirrel Shit, and Big Bear.

The trail is an abandoned road that has reverted to single-track.

Access Info

From the parking area at the CP Rail tracks and 81 St. in Coleman, head along the Community Trail and cross the bridge in the Green Mountain RV Park and turn east (left) towards York Creek Road. Before reaching the main York Creek Road, turn right towards the old Kenworth Shop and look for the single-track across the field.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
