We will start at the Lake Minnewanka parking lot and ride along the lake until we reach the Ranger Station (approx 16 km or 2 hours or riding). After having lunch on the shore of the lake we will return on the same trail.

The trail isn't too technical but it is constantly winding and rolling so good stamina and experience is necessary.

Depending on interest and level of riders we may split into two groups. The faster group going all the way to the Rangers Cabin and potentially meeting the other group on the way back.
If you are interested in leading the slower group, please let me know.
