3 day 2 night bike camp trip.

Much of this route is in either Big Creek Provincial Park or South Chilcotin Mtns Provincial Park. Be respectful of Park regulations, particularly staying on trail and not riding scree slopes.

As multi-use trails, expect other trail users, as well as wildlife on the trails. Ride with caution, and give way to other users.

The region is home to significant grizzly populations, and take appropriate care with food in camps and when encountering bears, give them space and time to reduce stress on the animal.

 Rode this from Tyax Lodge via Relay FSR. Makes a great day trip if you don't want to spend three days camping and carrying gear. #tredswel115 #fastandlight

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

FSR is drivable to Relay Creek FSR site. There is one steep and loose section requiring 4-low. The trail has some wet/mucky spots which are not always easy to get through. Otherwise seems to be in good shape.
Big Creek Trail

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.
Lower Tyaughton Creek Trail - Castle Junction to Paradise FSR

From the Castle Pass trail out to the road, trail is easy enough to follow, but has many, many downed trees - probably 15+, making going slow, and putting a damper on your hard-earned descents. A few short very boggy sections too, impossible to ride all the way through - soakers guaranteed.

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.
