Banff, Alberta, CanadaUpper Stoney Squaw is considered a x-country trail. It’s not a downhill run, as there is no vehicle drop off at the summit or lift service here. One has to peddle up the tight, rooty, rocky, twisty and steep climb to reach the summit of Stoney. The view of the surrounding mountains and the valley below is spectacular. From the summit you’ll make your way back down a gnarly, tight, and steep singletrack that winds its way through the trees all the way to the start of Lower Stoney. Some say the reward (sweet descent) is worth the climb up – why don’t you be the judge?
