UpsideGreat little cabin @ Sander Lake to stay in, large number of trails, A-MAY-ZING views on the Canyon trail. Great trail maint / builders - THANKS ALL DownsideBugs. 2 or 3 days would exhaust all the options. CommentFirst trip there, totally happy I did it. Would do it again. 3hrs from Calgary so make a long weekend out of it.

Upsidegeart set of trails, I wouldn't call them easy, but it was my first true mountain biking expereince and I managed Downsidebugs, especially bewteen little and big cedar lakes Commentthis was one of my best days of riding all season! I had a local tour guide so I didn't have a problem with getting lost. I did miss one turn and ended up in an area that had been reclaimed by the beavers, but i had even be warned about the upcoming turn so it was my fault. Can't wait to go back.

Upsidereally fun network of trails! Can play in here for hours! Downsidebears in area (need to call out/make noise), lots of bugs when I was there (and I was not wearing repellant)- and not that well marked. CommentHad a blast cycling in these trails. Even though I got lost I was able to find my way back to the road - there ARE maps in the area but not every intersection is marked. Keep riding and eventually you will find an intersection with a map!
