Mountain Biking Industrial Disease

***   Add a review
#118 of 1,379 mountain bike trails in British Columbia

An advanced trail that descends off the Flank trail, down toward Alta Lake.

"Industrial Disease" by Dire Straits:

Warning lights are flashing down at Quality Control
Somebody threw a spanner and they threw him in the hole
There's rumors in the loading bay and anger in the town
Somebody blew the whistle and the walls came down
There's a meeting in the boardroom they're trying to trace the smell
There's leaking in the washroom there's a sneak in personnel
Somewhere in the corridors someone was heard to sneeze
'goodness me could this be Industrial Disease?

    Unfortunately there is no signpost on the Flank trail to mark the start of this trail. I eventually found the trail by comparing my Strava breadcrumbs against the valley trail map. Not as easy as I had expected.

    This trail is about big slab rock faces, roots, steep descents, and sharp ascents.
    It does not seem to be highly used, and hence can be a little difficult to follow at times. There is also no signage at junctions, so I missed the join with d'animal that I was looking for.

    There is a beautiful river about half way through. It is almost impossible not to stop and soak in the beauty for a while,

    This trail seems to be at the tougher end of local black trails. The trail was definitely tougher than I was - I hike-a-biked way too many obstacles to say that I had a great time.
