|Zoomed In on the Route (Right to Left)|
I turned left onto this small trail off the main Blackjack route. The early part of this trail gets quite steep, but soon settles down to a very comfortable climb on an excellent small rock chip and sand base. I stopped to take pictures from both dead-end spurs.

The ride down is a perfect example of a ride where you DON'T WANT TO TOUCH THE FRONT BRAKE TOO HEAVILY: Steep with deep sand in places. There were plenty of ice chunks on the trails today, (real pink fingers weather), so on the way back I took a quick peep at Boomerang Lake to see if it was iced over. It wasn't iced over, but it was well on its way. I'll have to come and take a look at it around January.

|Cottle Lake had even more ice. The rings are where people have tried breaking the ice with rocks.|
|Great ride... Time for a wash!|
