This is one of the nicest loop trails at Nipika, leads to 1233m at the highest point, for great views of the peaks in the Assiniboine area. Do this loop in conjunction with the Moose Meadow loop. Access is a 5 km route from the parking to junction #33 partway through the Moose Meadow loop. This is a long ski trip with lots of hills for a great workout, but not recommended for beginners.
Follow directions as for Moose Meadow loop, past junction 26. From #33 follow the trails uphill to a junction marked Bridge trail. Here is an optional side-trip towards a bridge on the logging road. Currently this side trail dead-ends after 1.4km on a plowed road used by trucks.
Continue the Corral Creek loop with more hilly sections until the top of the hill is reached where some logging has opened up the meadows to great views over the Rockies.
Some exciting downhill runs take you back to Moose Meadow trail from here.
