One of my favourite Mountain Biking trails. Good crosstraining for the upcoming ski season! Banff area did not get as much snow as areas further east, the trail should be mostly dry. 16km out to the warden cabin for a total round trip of 32km. The trail is mostly moderate, though a bit rooty and rocky with a few technical sections where there are washouts due to the 2013 floods. Often if it's sunny it feels warmer than forecast, as the trail is on a south facing aspect. The trip time should be 4-5 hours on the trail.

Mountain Bike in good working order, helmet, spare tube, chain repair quick link, pump, bear spray.Also lunch or snack items and water.
