Carcross resident Wayne Roberts came across an abandoned trail underneath the historic Mountain Hero mining tramway in the late 1990s. He cleared out the trail into the subalpine, ran hiking tours on it, and welcomed writer Mitch Scott and photographer John Gibson (on assignment with BIKE) and some mountain biking locals on the first mountain biking descent in September 2000. Wayne is originally from BC. Trails actually drew him to Carcross as he saw an opportunity with the cruise ship tourists from Skagway and scenic, historic trails in Carcross. In this photo we are laboring up the road, about 70% of the way up Montana Mountain.
