There’s an unusually long and gentle alpine ridge making a stripe across the Camelsfoot Range – Nine Mile Ridge. Parallel, and just north, is the now closed China Head FSR, which is described as, “washed out, very rough, and only suitable for 4WD vehicles.” Perfect as a link into a loop with that big ridge. We started at Tyaughton Creek, in the South Chilcotins, and headed east – around the top of the Shulaps Range, across the upper reaches of the Yalakom Valley, and on to our elongated loop, twice across the top of the Camelsfoot. The resulting 4-day, 160km route wildly exceeded all expectations.

Aug.4: Rode from the Little Paradise intersection back to the Tyax Rec site in a rain storm so it was all wet but no issues other than lots of puddles and mud. The steep hill shown on the map is in very poor shape, I'm guessing with the ATV traffic climbing the hill it has been roto-tilled leaving loose muddy soil topped with baseball sized rocks. Even challenging to hike-a-bike up now. If you are planning to drive out that far the spots where the bank is sluffing on to the road surface hasn't gotten any better, resulting in off camber sections.
