Details

The weekend is shaping up for some great fall riding. For those who have a little energy left over from Saturday's ride can take a run at less strenuous ride in and around Banff.

I've never actually done this trial but have heard good things. Plan is to start at the trailhead below and work our way to the Toe and then back onto Tunnel loop. The distance should come in around 16 km with a light to moderate physical rating. However please make sure you have some rides under your belt and a proper XC mountain bike or higher.

Equipment
- helmet
- eye protection
- mountain bike
- gloves
- layers as it's getting cool
- water/food

Trailhead
Ride up Tunnel Mountain Road from town or choose to drive up and park in one of the many carparks located off Tunnel Mountain Road. The trailhead starts just past the Douglas Fir Resort and Chalets. Thirty metres up the road from the resort and visible on the south (right) side of the road. A map and a blue trail marker indicate the start.
