The new section of Scalli Mag trail is open! Scalli Mag serves as the connector trail between Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and the CBT and Moonraker Trail networks. Prior to the recent work, the trail was around 2.5km of single track linked with a 2km double track section which made for a fun and fast pace downhill ride but a tough climb back up. Thanks to the vision and fundraising of a group of homeowners from the Kicking Horse community and in collaboration with other key stakeholders, the trail got some welcomed enhancements and now makes for a great climb and descent for bikers of all abilities.
The new build is comprised of multiple single track sections that weave across the old double track. With nice open berms and a winding trail through the trees, the pedal back up is no longer so daunting!
Scalli Mag can be accessed from the resort just off Palliser Trail, directly across the street from Parking Lot 1. The trail finishes at the Cedar Lake turn off on Tallis Creek FSR making for an easy connection to Twisted Sister, Hemiptera, or Odonata.
The new trail work on Scalli Mag could not have been done without the support from all those involved. We would like to give a huge thank you to John Parry and friends from the community at Kicking Horse, the Golden Cycling Club, the Golden Community Foundation, and Brady Starr and Steve Crowe from Starr Trail Solutions.
