Kimberley’s Magic Line trail extended

The Magic Line Trail has been extended by eight kilometers.

Kimberley's Magic Line trail has been extended by eight kilometers.

The already existing Magic Line trail located within the Kimberley Nordic Trails has seen a massive extension — eight kilometre’s of burmy, flowy, fast fun, to be exact.

If you haven’t been on the first section of this trail, now is the time to get on it! As this trail is still new, signage has yet to arrive. Here are some general directions to get you on this great trail.

Locate the already existing Magic Line trail on this year’s KNPS map. From there it’s a quick jaunt across Horse Trail, once across the first bit of wood chipped single track, you will see the beginning of a man made trail that starts up Cardiac Hill. Once enjoying the descent of Cardiac’s burms, and jumps, you will want to get back onto the Horse Trail.

From there, a machine built trail will begin. Follow this trail across several different cross country trails. It will bring you just below the starting point to Moe’s canyon Trail. This is the start of the last ascent on the loop. The last turn needed to be made, is off of Moe’s, and it’s a right hand turn. It’s before the Musser’s junction on Moe’s. Having made that last turn, it’s a switch-back filled climb to the top east side of Moe’s Canyon. Post rest time, enjoy the down-hill fun from there!

The ending point to the loop will be back at the Kimberley Nordic Club’s Parking lot.

A quick side note: The last section of the Magic Loop is more downhill oriented. There have been signs posted at the bottom on the bridge over Trickle Creek warning hikers to be aware of mountain bikers. If you’re hiking in this area or on this loop, please read these signs.
