“There's fun for the whole family on this hand-built intro to Moose Mountain's downhill trails.”— Paul Lindfield
Segment 1 is marked with a sign on a tree on the West side of the Moose Mountain road about 200m down the road from the Jean Guy trailhead. It is a sweet and mellow singletrack though spruce and pine forest. There are some tight spots in the trees for those with wide bars, but this will just prepare you for the tight spots on the more difficult trails.
Segment 2 starts at the entrance to Toothless and shares the Toothless trail for the first 300 meters. At this point Toothless descends steeply to the right and Family Guy continues as a smooth fast trail through open areas, spruce and pine and then aspen forests.
Segment 3 from Billy Dog down to the junction with Elbow Valley trail is the longest and most varied segment. There is a mix of vegetation including many open meadows, where you'll be treated to abundant wild flowers and great views of the valley below and mountains beyond. Stop and take a moment to enjoy the views and consider that this trail was entirely bench cut by hand. This section includes a couple of wood bridges, boardwalks and a couple switchbacks that may challenge a true beginner. You should be able to ride crux corner with confidence before venturing onto the more difficult trails.
Family Guy ends at a T intersection with Elbow Valley trail. Turn right and continue downhill to ride about 300m to the Ings Mine Parking located just across Canyon Creek. Due to seasonal and rain-storm event fluctuations in water levels of Canyon Creek, it is advised to check the creek crossing at Ings Mine before biking down Family Guy to ensure an easy crossing.
