“A singletrack climb that connects riders with the top of the Kovenator descent.”
— Nick Kovaliv
The Claire Trail utilizes a portion of an old snowmobile/ATV trail before becoming a singletrack and ascending up towards the top of the Kovenator
. The beginning of the Claire Trail is wide open and fast as it passes Wally
. Heading downhill, you'll want to stay to the left, crossing a wet marshy area on rocky steps before turning left again and heading uphill.
From here, the trail climbs steadily over non-technical singletrack. Towards the end of the climb, you'll pass the exit for the Happy Trail Climb (also an easier descent for the Kovenator
) and then the upper entrance for the Kovenator
on your right before passing through the stonewall and under an archway. This trail can be ridden in either direction.
