Like most trails in the area, this is ridden south to north. It starts with a short, sharp climb (0.6 km) thereafter, it is all downhill back to civilization. The trail is a fairly recent addition to the area and is being refined with additional features – mostly jumps. This is a flowy ride making good use of the local rises and dips as the trail progresses downhill. Most TTFs can either be rolled or ridden around. Watch out for the barbed wire fence gap jump – dismount for the alternative through the fence option!
This trail is becoming a local favourite.

The trail may be accessed from the York Creek Road via OHV trails. An alternative access from the main valley utilizing Whistling Post and a new section of climbing trail is in the works.
There are no trail signs so if you are new to the area, take a trail map or go with someone who knows the route. The map shows the principal trails and OHV access/connectors. There are more trails so pay careful attention to navigation if this is your first visit.

After reaching the bottom of Super Trooper, you can ride a couple of blocks over to 16 Av and the Community Trail which runs along the north side of the Crowsnest River back to the centre of Coleman. Super Trooper is often combined with School of Rock. Because Super Trooper is at lower elevation than most York-Ironstone trails you may get out on it earlier in the season.
