The course is located throughout the trails of Cranbrook Community Forest, a few kilometers from downtown Cranbrook. The Kootenay region has quickly become a popular mountain biking destination because of the challenging terrain. The course for Six and the Stix was designed in 2014 to feature steep climbs and fast descents.
