Located west of the community of Bragg Creek, Alberta. This 9.62-mile loop makes for a pleasant foothill roll, despite some bad mudholes along its length. Beginning at the West Bragg Creek trailhead, it climbs gradually, passing through a muddy stretch, and climbs onto a high knoll on the edge of the foothills. As you reach the northern extent of the ride, you begin to roll along the edge of this knoll and get some great views toward the rolling country to the north and east of the ride. To the north, the aspen-coated slopes of the Jumpingpound River Valley lie just beyond Pinetop Hill. To the east, you look out toward some of the surrounding ranchlands of West Bragg Creek. Keep in mind that these trails are not maintained for summer use, so the conditions may vary dramatically.
