This ride starts with a seriously painful climb togain the ridge. Once on top, there's some really sweet singletrack undulating across the mountain. You will get a real wilderness feeling for a while until you realize you're riding just above a golf course. After you get past the golf course, there's a number of options , including continuing further North, looping back to the highway, or taking one of a couple singletracks back paralleling the golf course on the bottom side. Great exercise, pretty scenery, and very convenient.

    A x-country ride that takes you from the Cougar Creek parking lot, running above the Silver Tip Golf Course, over to Harvey Heights. Physically this is a demanding ride, as there is a lot of up. However, you are rewarded with sweet technical descents and amazing views of the Rundle Mountain Range.
