Mountain Biking Ross Lake

***   Add a review
#28 of 219 mountain bike trails in Alberta
#4,807 in the world

Ross Lake is a trail that roughly follows of the contour of the mountain, but drops down as it reaches the lake. The trail starts out wide, but eventually narrows into swooping singletrack with interspersed rocks, roots, and creek crossings. Once at the lake, you can turn around and ride back the way you came or drop down a singletrack to the Great Divide Bike Path and create a loop with the pavement.

This trail crosses the Continental Divide and passes into British Columbia and Yoho National Park.

    While this trail eventually narrows from doubletrack to singletrack and ends at a beautiful mountain lake, I just didn't find myself impressed with it. I was glad to have experienced it, but I probably wouldn't go ride it again.
