This single track traverses the whole property allowing riders a chance to enjoy all aspects of mountain biking. The trail features numerous creek crossings, old growth forests, abundant wildlife, beautiful overlooks, with challenging climbs and descents!

Multiple short cut and extension choices on this XC loop. The circuit is completed by riding a gravel service road back up to the lodge at the top of the hill and then back into the singletrack.

This trail was established in 1998 and has held on to its "old school" singletrack roots. There is a lot of elevation, so the average lap time is about 45 minutes.

Access Info

Lodge/chalet at bottom or top of the ski hill.
