Primarily a hiking trail connecting 2 cities, 3 BC parks and 6 riding areas.
Trail condition is highly dependent on recent maintenance in any given section of trail. If you don't know the condition of a section of trail from someone who has recently ridden or maintained it, be prepared to potentially encounter lots of downed trees and/or mud which may result in unpleasant hike-a-bike portions.
This trail could arguably be on par with the 7 summits trail or a Warner Lake float plane drop but is lacking the users and seasonal maintenance to make it epic.
Exercise caution if attempting sections of this trail, go prepared and know your exit points.
