Trail Description
About this trail
The trail starts climbing right away after leaving the information sign. At any
intersection keep right and climb until the summit. The trail is one of the
most technical single track climbs you will ever find. Cleaning it will be a
major challenge. At the summit are now at the top of Upper Stoney Sqaw.
The trail starts to descend and it is fairly technical, with narrow sections
between trees. At the halfway point you reach the lower Stoney Trail. This
trail can be ridden on its own by starting at the parking lot you were at to
access Upper Stoney, riding past the day lodge, past the chair lifts and
following signs to the trail head.
Lower Stoney is a ripper with great corners, long straight section and
nothing so steep that you can flow it fast and furious. The bottom section
gives you some sweet burm'd corners and a few jumps before dumping you
out at the gate (please close after you to keep animals inside the park) and
back onto the highway. You have about 1/2 mile ride back on the road to
your car.

Review: This trail is pretty wild! The initial 700 foot climb is a little bit of a pain; however, it is slightly more enjoyable if you challenge yourself to clear it's root-ridden grades. With some pushing, most of them can be done by an advanced mountain biker. The descent off of the mountain is completely rideable and completely awesome. Rooty steeps and hero dirt at the top give way to purpose-built singletrack on drier terrain on the bottom. That said, purpose-built does not mean buffed out in this case. Lower Stoney Squaw is still highly technical, but a good line will make it flow all the same.

Similar Trail: It's kind of like a condensed version of Hopeful at Panorama Bike Park.

Review: The Stoney Squaw trails can be steep, rooty, and rocky, but once the tires are pointed downhill this trail is to die for!

Review: A great flowy and fast signletrack trail to do on your downhill, all mountain or x-country bike. You can climb the paved Mt. Norquay road or you can shuttle to get to the Lower section of Stoney. The Upper part is also worthwhile, but I would rethink your bike choise. The climb to Upper Stoney is very technical and difficult - lot's of roots and rocks on steep pitches. It’s one of the favourites in the Bow Valley – longer than Reclaimer in Canmore and a lot of fun!

Similar Trail: Reclaimer - shuttle run in Canmore.
