From the Heart Creek trail head, it’s mainly a double track road up to the top of Jewel Pass. It’s a fairly steep climb with lots of loose rocks. Then enjoy the great twisting and turning single track with some tricky technical sections on the descent of Jewel. The trail then joins Stony trail and heads back over to Prairie View trail. From here we climb an old road that has some strenuous uphill sections which only make the next down hill even more worth while. We will climb up to what is known as the Bow Race Course. This section has some challenging steep technical down sections before joining up with the trails near the Scouts camp. From here there is a bit of route finding as we make our way back to Heart creek. The trail here can be very faint in places. Approx trip is 25 kms.
