Where to start:

Fraggle Rock Trailhead. 1.5km E of Cranbrook on HWY 3.

Alternatively, start at the Eager Hill Trailhead 4.5km E of Cranbrook on HWY 3

 

The ride:

Best done as a Figure 8 from Fraggle Rock. Begin at Fraggle Rock and ride Chewbacca Rocka clockwise to Chewbacca Connector. Then do a counter clockwise link-up of the Connector, the Eager Lookout double track climb and the Waterpark descent. Finish on the last bit of the Chewbacca back to Fraggle Rock.

Lots of short technical climbs and descents interspersed with easier riding. The reward comes on top of Eager Hill and a fine view of the Rocky Mountain Trench stretching from Fairmont to Elko. Has been ridden in January. Enjoy!
