Distance 12.7 km loop, height gain 551 m, moderately strenuous
Peeling off both sides of Moose Mountain Road between the lower parking lot and Moose Mountain parking is a network of x-country and DHS (downhill specific) bike trails. Most of them are not good hiking trails. However there is one loop worth doing â€” up Pneuma and down Family Guy. Winding through pine/aspen forest and occasional meadow with substantial height gains, it is great conditioning hikes and the trails are a pleasure to walk. If using Family Guy as the return leg, which is what I recommend, use Elbow Valley trail as the link back to Pneuma.
Start: Hwy. 66 (Elbow Falls Trail). 700 m west of Paddyâ€™s Flat campground access road turn right onto Moose Mountain Road. Park in the lower parking lot before the winter gate.
Difficulty: Easy hiking on good trails.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
