The Rubberhead starts down the old Wagon Road, past the cemetary and turns right on the dirt road. This road splits briefly but heads down to Trail Creek. Across the bridge, follow the mountain bike trail as it winds through the forest back up to the railgrade. Follow the grade uphill briefly to the start of the 007 Trail. As you pass under the powerline, keep left for the Rubberhead Trail. There are several kilometers of rolling flats. The descent down the road into Tiger Creek will level out, at which time you should watch for a trail that switches back hard to the left. This is the Crown Point Mine Road (easy to miss). This overgrown singletrack will eventually split to either the switchbacks or railgrade. For a spectacular view of Rossland, continue across Tiger Creek and grind uphill for 3kms, bear left and drink in the view.
Overall, Rubberhead Trail is the 10th most popular mountain bike trail of all 46 mountain biking rides in British Columbia. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Rubberhead Trail including Black Jack Nordic Trail System, Coyote Swamp, Drakes / Deer Park Loop, Kootenay-Columbia / Monte Cristo, Railgrade / Wagon Road Loop and Smugglers / 007Cascade / Midnight Loop.
