Head west of Calgary on Hiway 1 to the well marked Hiway 68 (Sibbald Creek Trail) exit (about 17.5km past hiway 22 overpass) and AFTER the Jumpingpound Road. It is 21km West of the Calgary Olympic Park intersection. Take the exit, go under the highway for about 12km to the Pinetop Recreation Area. If this is gated you can park on the road there or a further 2km West to get in the middle of the figure 8.

You must sign a trip waiver and contact information form to attend this event. The event organizer will have this for you.
