Wildlife restrictions can be in effect from November to March. Check the Avimor website for the most up to date conditions.

Need to Know

Example: There is very little shade after the first 2 miles, and the summer sun can be brutal. There are some rocky sections - careful of your ankles!

Description

This is a nice connection trail from the Avimor development up into the trail system. The trail begins on a gravel road until it reaches the water tower. From the water tower it is doubletrack eventually becoming singletrack. This trail maintains the ridge offering nice views along the way.

This trail is scheduled for improvements in 2015. The map will be updated when improvements have been completed.

Flora & Fauna

Example: You will find vast wildflowers featuring Rocky Mountain Columbine from July-September. Marmots are easy to spot, and moose if you're lucky!

History & Background

Example: There are rusting remains at the tip of Heyward Point of a winch system that was once used to haul gas tanks from the water to a light beacon on the headland.
