Climb up Flathead then, at the @4.25kms mark, enter the rideable, but incomplete trail, Griff's line. You will emerge at the lookout. Stop for the view of town and the Skeena valley then follow the hiking trail (stay left at all braided trails) to connect to Upper Backeddy. The trail junction is marked by a trail map posted in a tree. (If upper back Eddy seems difficult do not ride Lower Backeddy -you will not enjoy yourself- rather veer right at the trail junction and return to Johnstone trail head via Flathead). From the bottom of Lower Backeddy take a quick dip in the river then proceed about 2.5 kms to the new brewery, Sherwood Mountain, and try their new stout.

 Flathead/G-line jct is at about 4.5 km. Griff's line, aka G-line, is finished now.
