Demi-Tel is a short connector trail located on the north side of the West Bragg Creek Trails network. It connects Long Distance with Telephone Loop (summer section). To connect to Telephone Loop, ride Demi-Tel to Snowshoe Hare junction. At the juncture turn left (east) and ride 700 metres over to the summer portion of Telephone Loop. The Telephone Loop takes you back down (south) to the West Bragg Creek parking area. If you head north on Telephone Loop you will eventually come across the junction for Long Distance. Please note that the east leg of Telephone Loop is maintained for summer use, while the west leg, past the trailhead for Long Distance, is not.

Demi-Tel is a doubletrack trail with a few short sections of singletrack offering the rider little reward. The trail descends gradually over to Snowshoe Hare and is a quick ride in either direction. It is a beginner to intermediate ride built to connect with Telephone Loop and is not worth riding unless you’re using it to return to the parking area via a shorter loop.
