Point-to-point in the high foothills with views of the front ranges as well as Calgary & beyond. Shorter options are available. By bike make a 36 km loop using the (gravel) Powederface Trail.

Most Much of the trail is in the trees, but there are good (sorry Sasq, I say they're AMAZING - Ed.) views from the top of the ridge.

Directions:

Start and finish are both on Powderface Trail. South (Canyon Creek) trailhead is on 15 km north of Hwy 66 and 20 km south of Hwy 68. Dawson (north) trailhead is 3 km south of Hwy 68.

Get up over 2220m. Downside 800m cumulative climbing over 2 major climbs (500m and 250m), that said, I'm very glad I did it. Will still have snow late in the spring, (say for example on June 26 when we did it) that you have to push your bike through for 100 or so meters spread over 4-5 sites. Comment If you're a mortal like me, you'll leave a car at Dawson, then drive to the South end and ride in one way, then drive back for the drop off car. Have GOOD BRAKES, it's full on brakes for most of the last 6km.
