Snagmore is a part of the West Bragg Creek Trails network. It is a multi-use singletrack trail that may be ridden either direction; south to north or vice versa. For the best flow, ride it south to north, accessing it via Elbow Trail. The trail offers some amazing views along a number of viewpoints, while covering some great rolling terrain. Similar to the fun singletrack trails built in the area, Snagmore is one of the more diverse trails and one of my favourite to ride. When you’re not climbing up gradual switchbacks and along various ridge lines, you’ll be descending some smooth and flowy singletrack along sections of well-built bench cut trail. Overall the trail is super smooth and fun to ride, no huge technical sections here, except for a few tech moves when climbing or descending at high speeds.
Snagmore is very well marked, as are other newly built singletrack trails in the area. All major junctions include an overview map showing your location. Please give right of way to equestrians and hikers found using these trails on busy weekends.
