“A fun, short loop from West Bragg with scenic views from Ranger Ridge.”— Paul Lindfield
The trail climbs steadily for 3.5km until it reaches the ridge. Look out for a short optional detour after 2.75km via a minor summit with good views to the west & east. Once at the ridge the trail turns to the south east and climbs almost to the summit at the junction with Bobcat and Strange Brew.
Stay left (on the ridge) and after a further 300m you'll reach the stone chairs at Baruch's Corner. From there the trail descends back toward West Bragg with only a couple of small climbs to interrupt your flow. Shortly after crossing the wide Elbow ski trail the trail intersects with Boundary Ridge which takes you back toward the trailhead. When you swoop out of the final turn on to Crystal Line just continue ahead and swing right to the Bragg Creek bridge.
