Northern 8 includes some great singletrack trails located on the north side of the West Bragg Creek Trails network to form an excellent 20 km figure eight loop. The loop may be ridden in either direction, but starting the ride clockwise will provide the best flow. This loop is a 10km extension of the Northern Flow Loop, integrating the fast downhill flow of Disconnect, and the best, driest section of Telephone Loop. Begin the loop directly from the West Bragg Creek parking lot by riding north on Braggin Rights. Ride up Braggin Rights to Reconnect and over to the Long Distance intersection. Once there, head north (left) and follow Long Distance approximately 1 km over a small ridge to take in some deadly views, and continue down to the Disconnect intersection. At this point, follow the fast and flowy, newly built Disconnect trail down approximately 1.5km to the intersection with Telephone Loop. Heading North (left) here will provide some fast rolling singletrack sections of Telephone Loop, mixed in with a few small climbs for good measure. Once at the North intersection with Long Distance, head south and enjoy some great rolling singletrack with a sustained climb back to the ridge top. Continue following long distance straight back to end your ride with a great, fast downhill back to the parking lot.
