A Breath of Fresh Air in Ridgemont

Time: Approx. 45 mins - 1 hour
Distance: 5 km • Difficulty: Blue

During these uncertain times it’s important to carve out time for yourself. Getting outside and hitting the trails is a great way to take a mental break from your daily commitments and boost your energy. A breath of fresh air always feels good!

If you are pressed for time, an easily accessible area from town is the Ridgemont trail network, which is frequently groomed in the winter. You can do this fun loop on your bike or on foot.

Head up Cemetery By-Pass for a short and gradual climb, stay right on Kiddy Up navigating a number of switchbacks and then on to Queen V for a little more climbing. Continue on Eco Terrorist travelling over some boardwalks until you reach Ridgemont Rd. Take a right and a quick left onto Eric’s for a short but punchy climb before the fun descent. Continue on Roxy Roller, one of Ridgemont’s newer trails which is sure to put a smile on your face. Cross Ridgemont Rd. dropping into Space Unicorn for one last rip on some rollers and berms.
