A 4 day loop in the Chilcotins - starting from Taylor Creek and ending in Gun Meadows. You could definitely do it in 3 days, but we decided to take the mornings pretty easy and enjoy the riding!

      Super fun flowy and tight single track through the forest. If you come off the bottom of Johnnys or even Gun Creek Trail, it’s well worth the extra five minute pedal back to the road on the way out. Brings you out just above Tyax Adventure Ranch.
      Mid Grasslands Trail

      Similar to previous reports, if wanting to access Spruce Lake Main going East along this trail, make sure to take the Mid-Grasslands trail (not labeled on trailforks) as if you follow this you will end up having on the black to the south.
      Spruce Creek Trail

      From Spruce Lake to WD Trail Junction this trail is very good (that section should merge with WD rather then be called Spruce Creek Trail) The rest of the trail from the WD junctiin to Lower Tyaughton Trail is overgrown and not maintained with many downed trees and sections that cannot be ridden. Trail could be considered decommissioned if they don't want to maintain it. If accessing Spruce from Tyaughton Trail, go the extra 2km and ride WD to the lake.
      Lower Gun Creek Trail (Jewel to Spruce)

      Tyax Adventures cleared 7 trees across trail today, so now clear from 1st foot bridge after descent through meadows to gun creek road. 1 x mud hole after jewel remains
