High Point

This is the third and final day of the Backcountry Adventure South Chilcotins trip. After packing up camp, make your way over Windy Pass and down High Trail. Save some energy on the climb up to Lick Creek Trail so you can fully enjoy the descent.

This will be the most technical descent of the trip with some heavily eroded sections of trail, although all are passable. Ride the descent with caution, there were several downed trees after the steep switch back section of Lick Creek as of Early August 2018, so keep your heads up!

We opted to skip the lowest section of Lick Creek trail, and traverse out on Pearson Bench. This saves ~10km of gravel grinding out Gun Creek Road and Tyaughton Lake Road.

Expect this route to take 4-6 hours.

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
