The Ribbon Creek Winter trail joins Hidden Trail, accessed out of the Ribbon Creek Day Use, with the Ribbon Creek Snowshoe Trail. After 300 m on Hidden Trail, you turn left on Coal Mine Trail, and climb up to meet the Ribbon Creek Winter Trail.

From the junction, the trail is an exciting mix of downhill corners for approximately 1.2 km before it rejoins the shared Ribbon Creek Snowshoe Trail, 0.9 km before the Link Trail junction. For approximately 900 m the Ribbon Creek trail is shared with multiple users, including cross-country skiers, walkers, snowshoers and fat bikers. 

The 900 m portion of Ribbon Creek before the Link Trail junction is multi-use. Please practice proper winter trail etiquette and share the trail. 


Trail is double track set.
