Description

The Wolverine Trail is, by all accounts, the marquee trail on Lower Montana Mountain in Carcross.

Part of Wolverine's popularity is because it can be reached by either pedaling or shuttling.

The version of Wolverine shown here is the pedal-driven loop option. To reach the top of Upper Wolverine, follow the classic climbing route by taking Lower Dei Kwaan to Black Bear, to Upper Dei Kwaan, and then take a right on Caribou to reach the top of Upper Wolverine. The fantastic Wolverine trail is filled with all manner of rock features! You'll see ledges, rock rolls, bridges into rock rolls, rock drops, rock gardens, bridges between rocks...

it's a very complex and highly entertaining trail! Despite the massive features, there's good flow between the features and good transitions between the rocks.

While in most places the trail looks quite natural, it's clear that the builders took care to design transitions into and out of the features. In the gut of the trail, all of these rocks will mean that there are usually multiple line options to choose from.

In some places, you may be faced with not only A and B lines but C and D lines as well (if you can spot them all).

For a first ride through, it's a good idea to scout the bigger features and spend some time picking out all the lines.

While this trail is fairly long, it feels like it's over all too quickly, so you might as well spend some time sessioning the coolest lines as you go! Since there are so many lines, Wolverine is actually one of the more accessible tech trails on Montana Mountain.

Trails like Goats, Grizzly Bear, and Wolf will funnel you into some challenging mandatory features.

So if you need a warmup lap, start with Wolverine. Lower Wolverine might be marked as an intermediate trail on the map, but it's not all that much easier than the upper section.

There are some loamy steep bits mixed with rocky, slabby bits, so some sections are definitely not "intermediate" in most senses of the word.

Lower Wolverine continues to offer highly entertaining riding all the way down to the trailhead.
