Yellow Loop Map

From the back of the Daylodge riders travel across the cross country stadium and head up the wide double track trail, Centennial. At Junction 51 riders connect onto the single track trail Killer Bees until Junction 74 where riders connect with Ziggy’s, a smooth and gentle up-track. At junction 57 riders will connect onto The Albertan for a short while before taking a right onto EKG. Riding in an anti-clockwise direction riders will take a right onto EKG East continuing on the fun single track featuring rocks and roots. Riders will then link up to Hey McLeod and Centennial, making for a cruise downhill back into the Cross Country Stadium. Riders travel through the Parking lots area of the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park to ride Dipped Cone and Soft Yoghurt. Berms, jumps, rollers and doubles make Soft Yoghurt a fun flow trail that riders can pick up speed and really play around on. Riders will then continue onto Devonian Drop a short flow trail with two rocky berms (use caution on this trail when wet as the rocky sections do get slippery). Riders will climb uphill back to the parking lots of the CNCPP.
