Either as an access into the Park, or an exit, this trail works you both ways. Definitely less traveled, so expect blowdown and still be read to give way to other trail users.

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.

 Spruce Creek to Fortress Ridge climb intersection:
There is a big loose climb up from Tyaughton Creek to the high trail elevation; in wet conditions it might be impossible unless you had crampons.
There are some eroded sections with serious exposure, a fall here would likely be fatal as you would stop at the creek hundreds of meters below.
