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. CAUTION several downed trees on Lick Creek Trail as of Early August, so keep your head up.

Expect this route to take 4-6 hours.

      Cleared five or six trees but there are still a few left. Most of them are now below the park boundry so hopefully someone can whip up on a trials bike and get the rest.
