Cardrona Peak to Pub

The Peak to Pub trail is open daily to ride the lower bike park trails and join the historical "Persecution Road". This will take you all the way down to the Cardrona Hotel... boom! The whole Cardrona Peak to Pub trail is 10km long, and covers 1270m of vertical descent. Catch the shuttle back up for more laps or pizza and a beer to end your day.

This is an epic backcountry freeride experience on private land – just make sure it’s not your first time riding downhill; the trail is a mixture of single track and backcountry riding so some experience is essential.
