This is the legend. The big epic loop all the way up Stone Free and down Big Ed. Be sure to budget enough time for this big ride, most riders will require several hours to finish.

This is the easier of the Big Ed options, but is still an advanced route and will present a big challenge for most riders.

Look forward to 2016 when Pali Gap will connect Stone Free Again to Tombstone with one long continuous singletrack, eliminating the need to go on any roads!

Matt speeds down Tombstone, the old Kamloops Bike Ranch down hill course. Shale rocks and fast sections are what you can expect to see...

Seriously dry and loose. Seems like there are more rocks and roots than normal in spots.

I thought it was going to be dry like many of the other Kal lake trails right now, but it actually had a lot of traction and could be ridden very fast.
