This new addition to the G8 is fabulous. Gruelling climbing, great view and a screaming descent!

Description

This new addition above the G8 went in late 2013 and is now in great condition. It's also known as "Top Down Stash" or "Above G8,"

A tough 15-20 minute grueling climb with little rest brings you to a fabulous lookout and the high point on this side of Canmore you can get to by bike. The climb is followed by a ripping high-speed descent on singletrack straightaways, berm-walled gullies and steep, blocky, loose rough.

From the G8 ravine crossing, ride East 100 m and take the left trending trail which will lead you on the upper leg of the G8. Some fun, fast uphill leads to a meadow, then into a poplar forest - watch for the turn to the left.

This unmarked turn begins taking you up 20 minutes of non-stop, no-rest climbing to the start of Top Down Stash. Rest at the view on top, get your juice back, then start the fast, sometimes steep and scary, descent. At the bottom, there's a decaying log to hop and a trail junction - turn left to rejoin the G8 and enjoy the continued fast descent!
