River crossing can be problematic during periods of high water. Trail can be tough to follow in lower forest and through marsh near Big Creek.

As with all BC Parks trails, ride this trail with caution and be ready to dismount for horses and give way to hikers or other riders.

NOTE: At the request of Parks, please do not post times to the leader board for this or any Parks trail. Respect this wish and help ensure the experience of riding in the South Chilcotins will be available for years to come.

 Pro tip: Make sure you pick up the trail on the East shore of Big Creek after you cross. Bushwhacking through the swamps, ponds, meadows and tree belts below the pass can take hours and burn up a ton of energy. Make sure you have a good GPS track of the actual trail.
