There are the St. Raymond trails, then about 12 miles north are the Shanihan trails.the photos look good. are the trails technical, twisty?
^ Thanks for the summary MikerJ... very cool we were at VBN at the same time. I have a great deal of respect for the trail builders and community for their efforts to create such fun trail network.
We can't wait to go back again (before hunting season) to explore the Neilson trails.
Neilson Est is not that hard. Really a long descent with a mix of steep flow with rock ledge/jump/slab. But you're right, to get there it's the hardest climb in the area. My last time there (2018) it was 35 degrees and I had to walk most of it... It's 2.3km at 14% in a loose fire road. They are supposedly building a single track to go up there. Maybe next year... I'm going to ride the three Neilson tomorrow so I'll see if I can stay on my bike!Nelson Est is apparently the one trail for old farts to avoid, unless you find a shuttle.
Trying to firm up plans with 2 buddies for the week of 22nd.
I'll be one of 2 older farts, both on red & black Rocky Mountain T-Bolts, trying to keep up with a 50yr old punk.
