Braggin Rights is a fun singletrack trail belonging to the West Bragg Creek Trails network and may be ridden out-and-back or as a part of a loop. For a suggested loop to ride, visit the Northern Flow Loop trail page.

Braggin Rights is an intermediate singletrack ride which begins with a gradual climb. This is not a very long trail, but when combined with others in the area you’re sure to get a fun workout. The trail is a lot of fun to climb and descend. The climb combines a few short and steep sections right at the beginning followed by a steady, low grade, switchback climb up to the top of the trail. Alternatively, coming down Braggin Rights provides its own kind of fun. The short steep ups now become sections of trail that allow you to pick up speed and gain some air when riding fast or just act as a nice roller coaster effect. The trail flows real nice either up or down; so ride it both ways to figure out your maximum flow. Watch out for other users when coming down the trail as this is the main connector to Long Distance and may get busy during the weekends.
