Description

Sulphur Springs is one of the older multi-use trails in the area and while not built for mountain biking it's a popular choice. It's typically ridden in an anti-clockwise loop with either Elbow Valley or Riverview. Park at Station Flats for the traditional loop or the 2km parking on Moose Mountain Road for a shorter option.

From the east the trail begins with a section of loose-gravel doubletrack; some of this can be avoided by taking the twisty singletrack reroute through the trees on the right. The trail climbs at any easy grade for the first 2km and then kicks into 800m of sustained 14% climb that will challenge even reasonably fit riders.

Over the next kilometer you'll cross Pneuma and Hot Laps before reaching the Moose Mountain Road. Cross the road into the 2km Parking area and from the back corner take the short, sharp climb up to the summit. From here you can take in the view down the Elbow Valley before descending via the swooping flowy trail to the 4-way intersection at the bottom. From there, left will take back along Elbow Valley or stright on will take you down to Hwy 66 and the Riverview trail.
