Trip Link

This trail is often planned at the same time as checking out the Boulder Gardens and Shipyard Titanic.


The trail head begins at the Core Lodge cabin and contains rugged alpine areas with exciting climbs, bowls and steep alpine peaks. Use extreme caution and know the snow report before you set off.


There are chances of avalanches, use caution. Make sure you are well equipped for back country riding – carry avalanche packs, beacons, probes, GPS, extra fuel, etc.
