Dome 'J.R. Elliott Cabin' Emergency Shelter
Families and novice riders will love a day on The Dome, with wide, groomed trails leading eight kilometres to the Jason Robert Elliot Memorial shelter. Play in a big, open meadow in front of the cabin or continue past the cabin on a circle route that heads out the Canyon Creek Forest Service Road and leads back to the parking lot. For a longer adventure, riders can head right, up and over the hill behind the cabin to end up on the Fulton Forest Service Road, where they can ride right into Granisle mining town. The terrain is all the best of mountain riding—scenic views and soft, rolling hills—but without the intense challenges.
