A superior singletrack substitute for the boring old Iron Springs Trail.

Description

The all-season singletrack trails Snagmore and Boundary Ridge are vastly superior to the old doubletrack Iron Springs (listed as Iron Creek in Doug Eastcott's classic 1999 book, Backcountry Biking). The old trail is primarily a XC ski trail but in the summer it serves as a much shorter and less hilly - but not as fun - alternative to the new all-season singletrack.

Snagmore is a trail of two halves: the southern 2km rolls gently around the plateau above the Elbow river; the northern half features a >10% grade 120m climb & 90m descent (from south to north) over a hill.

At 0.5km from the northern end the trail crosses the Iron Springs trail and parallels it to the major intersection with the Elbow trail and Boundary Ridge. A map is posted at each intersection but you can basically just pick the singletrack option each time.

This trail is normally ridden as part of the Southern Flow ride, either from the Fullerton Trailhead or from West Bragg Creek.
