If you like challenging technical singletrack trails or screaming-fast fireroad descents, then you're sure to enjoy this ride. An old road climbs high on the side of Barrier Mountain to a superb panorama of mountain and prairies. Singletrack trails complete the loop. This is a local favourite with hikers and mountain bikers so be courteous to others and have fun. The old road provides a sometimes strenuous uphill workout on a well-drained track as it climbs to the old lookout site. For those who do not want to climb over the ridge and ride the singletrack, this is the turn-around point. The trail continues as a singletrack climbing steeply through the cliffs to a high vantage-point overlooking prairies and peaks.
