Cardrona Peak to Pub
Meet our Cardrona hosts under the Archway at 4pm daily to ride the lower bike park trails & 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, & covers 1270m of vertical descent.
This is an epic backcountry freeride experience on private land, hosted by the Cardrona crew! Just make sure it’s not your first time riding downhill – the trail is a mixture of single track & backcountry riding so some experience is essential. We also offer a shuttle service to get you back up to the Cardrona Base area for $10pp.
