Avoid causing trail damage during mud season.
This is also a popular mountain biking and hiking trail, so please be courteous to all. These trails were built and are maintained by mountain bikers, so be grateful!
This trail follows the Trans-Canada natural gas pipeline so the right-of-way has been cleared of all trees. Generally, this trail is used to climb back up for the descent of other sweet singletrack trails, but either way is fun. Since the trail is tree-free, views of the Pend Oreille River are always on offer.
Flora & Fauna
Deer, moose, bear and the occasional cougar may be encountered here. In the spring, wildflowers and especially Lupine abound.
