Description

The trail begins at the top of the Quickdraw chairlift by the wedding venue. This area overlooks the Fraser River Canyon and the Continental Divide.

Off the top, the trail is more steep and has many switchbacks through the woods with views of the canyon along the way. Near the middle of the descent, the trail climbs several switchbacks in an open sage field with cool views of the canyon. After this slight climb, the descent continues through the neighborhood. The other end of the trail is on the east end of the parking lot by the log cabin at the base of the resort.

The average grade of the upper part is 8% and the lower (green) is 2% with pretty minimal rock/technical terrain, there are a few tough climbs that put it into the blue category. It's blue going uphill, but most people run it down...
