This is the easy way to get to the top of Baldy Pass. It's a long climb along an old hiking trail / FSR that crosses through some cutblocks. Watch for signs, don't get suckered into heading off toward Lusk Pass or it will be a very long ride indeed. The climb isn't that bad until the last couple of km, where it gets steeper, looser and narrower. The weather at the top can be several degrees cooler than at the bottom, so don't be surprised if there's snow off the side of the trail by early September.

Access Info

Park at Barrier Dam and ride about 200m of Hwy 40 to the start of the ride at the U of C Research Station. If you're doing the full Baldy loop, you can also start at the Porcupine Group Camp parking lot, west on Hwy 40.
