Mountain Biking Swine Flu Loop

****   Add a review
#103 of 1,378 mountain bike trails in British Columbia
#5,073 in the world

Climb up Mad Cow single track up through the trees which open into a short
section of pasture land. Pass the barb wire fence via the bike pass through.
continue climbing through more forested single track. You will eventually come
to the power line continue up to the right, climbs steeply around a switch back
before heading back into the trees. Keep climbing til you see a bench with a
pig, turn right for the rest of the grunt up swine flu. At a second bench the trail
continues up to the left (hiking only), and down to the left for the start of the
DH. This is a mix of steep sections, berms, and swoopy hairpins. Take the left
around a berm half way down (going straight is back onto Mad Cow). Dumps
onto wider trail that links up with the single track you came up. A left will take
you down a short trail with some steep sections that drops into the information
centre (not sure but this might be hiking only- if so should probably go back on
the highway as you came)

    Classic 4-star singletrack: great riding, good views, but nothing that screamed "this is awesome." The descent, though, was pretty dang fun!

    A little bit of grunt for a climb, just like everything else in Fernie. Followed by a great downhill.
    Nothing really technical, a little steep and loose in spots.
