This trail is located just west of the town of Elkwater off Highway 41. This pleasant 13.4-mile beginner loop includes 4.8 miles of trail riding, followed by a pleasant road route back to the trailhead. It's the longest trail in Cypress Hills Provincial Park and provides a chance to see a little of the park's quieter areas. The trail provides a combination of deep forest riding and pleasant road pedaling through ranch country. From the trailhead in a grassy meadow, the trail climbs over a small height of land with a pleasant growth of wildflowers before it descends several times through some wet terrain. Keep you eyes out for moose as you travel through these wet areas. The combination of dry upslope conditions with marshy lowlands makes this trail unique.
