Most people don't realize that out here in the boonies, there are some great mini-trails. I call this a mini trail because it can be covered in about 5 minutes. It's small. You'll want to run it about 10000 times, although if you go all out, you'll only have enough energy to go three or four times. The trail starts at a nice grassy trail, the up a steep, root-covered hardpack line, down more grass (the whoops themselves), and hardpack for the rest of the time. There is also a mini-dh nearby.
How to get there:
Get on highway 2, the big one, then turn off somehow into Lacombe. Ask for directions to the Canadian University College. The trailhead is right across the road from the phys-ed complex. It's good.
