LOWER STONEY SQUAW. Banff, Aberta
Lower Stoney Squaw is a very popular trail located in Banff National Park on Mt. Norquay, just minutes from Banff town centre. The trail is narrow, rocky, and very rooty near the bottom half of the track. It can be ridden fast, or at your own speed, and is loads of fun for the intermediate to advanced rider.
RECLAIMER. Canmore, Aberta
Reclaimer is a popular downhill shuttle run that requires advanced bike handling skills and features loose rocks, tight corners, and jumps.This trail starts off steep and combines a few short flat sections that you can coast through when carrying your speed, flowing all the way to the bottom. The first few corners are technical and lined with rocks. After that youíll be able to open her up a bit as you rip down the straight away into another banked corner and out the other side.
RIDERS OF ROHAN. Canmore, Aberta
Riders of Rohan is another popular shuttle run in Canmore. The trail is rated advanced to expert and consists of steep, rocky singletrack terrain that takes you whirling back down to the Quarry (dog park) parking lot. Expect loose, rocky, and very steep terrain on this fun descent. Read more
