Trail Description
About this trail
The Tunnel Mountain Tech Trails works pretty well as it's own little trail system, due to its physical separation from the rest of the Tunnel Mountain Trail System. This small trail system boasts the best singletrack in Banff National Park, with the ingeniously-designed Topp Notch Trail, the aggressive Star Wars trail, and the mild-but-flowing Return of the Jedi.

Review: Not only is Topp Notch one of the best built trails out there with a variety of high-risk features, tight switchbacks, and technical trials, but Star Wars is right up there too. Although the trail is much looser, its big jumps, challenging trail features, and high-speed berms will give you just as big of a grin.

Review: Epic trail. A playground that I could do over Andover. I rode to this via the coastline and teddy bears playground trails which were both fantastic in their own right.

Review: Topp Notch is pretty short, but this trail may be one of the most inspired mountain biking trails I've ever ridden! The utterly unique features and trail design make this absurdly entertaining. If you're anywhere close to Banff, you need to ride here!
