A beautiful trail with magnificent views, abundant wildflowers, and excellent riding. This 18.6km purpose-built cross country trail climbs from a cutblock up through impressive mountain hemlock sub-alpine forest, and into the alpine meadows. It crests on a rolling ridge with views in all directions, then dips down to a small lake and extends to the next high point on the ridge (new 5.7km extention opens for the 2018 riding season). This is a provincial recreation trail operated by the RCA in partnership with Recreation Sites & Trails BC.
