The Guy Lafleur trail is now what used to be called the Quebexican trail.
If you want to get away from the crowds without having to drive too far, the South side of the Highway 1 between Three Sisters and Exshaw has some great singletracks that see very little traffic. Expect lesser maintained trails, but the running out there is twisty, technical and packed with short and steep climbs and descents! Low traffic means more wildlife, so don't forget your bear spray at home.
- Distance: 10 km for the out and back on the Guy Lafleur trail, 16 km for the TCT corridor from Dead Man's Flat to Exshaw and back.
- Difficulty: Moderate to Challenging
- Total Elevation Gain: 240 meters for the Guy Lafleur roundtrip, 800 meters for the TCT Bow Corridor roundtrip
- Where to park:
- For the Guy Lafleur trail, park roadside after the new Stewart Creek developments on Three Sisters Parkway.
- For the TCT Bow Corridor, take the Dead Man's Flat exit and park just past the cattleguard at the bottom of the hill that leads to the Peter Lougheed viewpoint.
- Surface: Technical. Mostly dirt with the occasional rock section. Narrow in places.
