Back country cabins must be booked through Tyax Adventures and are not available without booking ahead of time.

The ultimate multi day riding adventure for the serious mountain biker. Lorna Lake to Tyax Lodge. A float plane accessed 3 day riding adventure with stays in Tyax Adventures back country camps. You can do this fully guided or you can do it self guided. You will ride approximately 80 kilometers over three days and see some of the very best terrain in the Chilcotin area. You will stay at the Bear Paw and the Spruce Camps both of which are situated in unbelievable wilderness locations, these camps even have camp hosts who can prepare all of your meals so you can relax after long days in the saddle. We have done this trip in the past and it is THE adventure that keeps us coming back year after year and possibly one of our fondest mountain bike memories. Put this one on your bucket list!

Made the trip from Whistler to The Chilcotins. Mixture of DSLR and GoPro shots with no tri-pod, so a bit dodgy and shaky. The Faces - Oh La La

Lots of water at the trail head from Graveyard cabin. Hard to avoid getting wet feet. Creek crossings are fairly typical and easy to do. Trail once away from crossings is in good shape with the trail in good shape with only an occasional wet spot that contain dry lines through.

We failed to get to Lorna Lake due to weather rolling in with heavy rain. Tosh creek crossing was easy with logs across to the north. Second wet crossing (southern direction) was quite swampy. We headed along the creek and found the going OK but slow. Lots of large grizzly and moose foot prints along this route.

The junction between High Trail and High Trail South is incorrect on Trailforks. The junction is a up the hill and a couple hundred meters further. See the screenshot of my ride log attached for the correct GPS of the junction.
