Ramble On is a fun, rocky and rooty, intermediate singletrack descent located in Mosquito Lake Area. The trail is accessed off of Old Fotsch Road and is typically used to get to the trailhead for Moby Dick, found halfway down the trail. Alternatively, you may continue to descent Ramble On to connect with the lower part of Cream Puff.

The first half of Ramble On is very fast and flowy. It will cross a short section of Cream Puff, less than 50 m from its trailhead. Make sure to keep right (west) when criss-crossing Cream Puff and avoid climbing up the rock bluff to your left if you want to stick with Ramble On. The rock bluff is a part of the Cream Puff trail, an advanced all-mountain descent. Several small and large rocks line the playful Ramble On descent and will challenge the intermediate rider when taken at speeds. Once Ramble On meets up with Moby Dick (right), the trail veers left and heads up a short quick climb, before continuing to traverse back across to Cream Puff. Most riders will ride Ramble On to Moby Dick, taking a right onto Moby Dick and down to Dark Forest. From there they will continue to descent Dark Forest out towards the gravel pit.

Take a right at the fork onto Old Fotsch Road and continue south for 1.3 km along the road until you reach the trailhead for Ramble On. When riding up Old Fotsch Road, make sure to keep right at all major junctions. The trailhead is not signed, but easy to spot. Look for it to head west (right) into the woods exactly at 1.3 km up Old Fotsch Road from the Mosquito Lake Road turn off.
