Home of The Canada games (I think I saw?) and many local XC MTB races, this is an unexpected gem in the middle of the prairie. I don't remember most of the route names other than Discotech and the Toilet Bowl but there is many, many lines that can be combined to make a trail of your required distance. We did about 8km but you could easily make 20+ out of it without getting bored.

It is a relatively small area, probably only a few square km, but it makes good use of the banks of the valley and coulees it sits in. There are a couple serious, twisty downhills (not real long, this is SK after all) that got the adrenalin going. In all there were 5 or 6 sections that, if I wasn't trying to keep up with a local rider I met in the parking lot, would've made me think twice about taking them at at the speed I did. (Thanks again for the tour Darren!)

There seems to be a dedicated group that maintains it (I'm not from there, just passing through) as it was squeeky clean, well groomed and the logs and other obstacles have been recently replaced.

Directions:

Go NW of Regina on HiWay #11 about 10.5km past where it turns off of Albert (#6). Turn West on secondary HiWay 734. At 7.7km where the HiWay takes a hard right to the N, go straight (watch for cars as I KNOW you'll be thinking of singletrack) down the gravel road. Another 1.8km (around a couple left hand turns) and you will find the well marked parking lot. There are a few signs on the way so you won't get lost.

We are interested in snowshoeing and want to know if there are signs indicating which trails to use. Thanks!
