An easy to moderate mountain bike ride that takes you into the remote backcountry of Kananaskis Country. Mainly double track with some sections of single track following the Elbow and Little Elbow rivers.  Done in a counter clockwise direction following the Little Elbow River to Romulus is rolling terrain on double track. At Romulus you start climbing on the double track, moderate elevation gain till the summit, great views of Tombstone Mountain and a quick rest before a fun downhill descent to the intersection with Big Elbow trail.  Turning to the East, Big Elbow has sections of single track, mixed with the double track. Some climbing left but generally descending and following the Elbow river. The loop offers amazing views of the mountains, doing a loop around Glasgow, Caldwell, Banded Peak and views of both river valleys.
