Mountain Biking Topp Notch

*****   Add a review
#8 of 219 mountain bike trails in Alberta
#1,730 in the world

Topp Notch is the first purpose-built mountain bike trail in a Canadian national park. As you might expect, this trail is a work of art! Fantastic benchcutting, delicious berms, technical rock gardens, awesome bridges, and fantastic flow all combine to create an extremely varied mountain bike experience in a gorgeous locale. Oh, and did I mention, that this masterpiece was built completely by hand?
