Sometimes you just gotta rock! This 8.16-mile trail offers the only cruising ride in the Lake Louise area. While it remains in the trees for its entire length, it's a great place to head out and put on some fat tire mileage. The views remain obscured by trees throughout the route's length, but the ride is pleasant and you'll have periodic views of the Pipestone River. The trail's surface is excellent, and the gradient s moderate. While it may be tempting to scram back to town after all that climbing, be aware that other users may be climbing up, especially horseback riders and hikers, so be cautious and share the trail.
