High Point

Probably the most pleasant way to get around Camp Chief Hector. CCH is a great descent, but the ride back to Barrier Dam can be a pain. By going along Stoney Extension to Barrier Powerline, you avoid the tedious, horsey section of Stoney Trail.

One big tree across trail, but theres a path around it. Since its late in the season (Oct 29), this will probably get picked up in the spring cleanup.

Climb up is clear. The first downhill section on the other side had allot of snow, that side doesn’t get much sun

I guess that this is my 2nd hit of this trail, but I have told my bike buddies today that this is going to be my first time again on this trail. they called it the jail trail back in the days.
