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

Easy riding both directions, well cleared and brushed. Technical "janky" rock sections near the bottom.

I wouldn't call this a green descent as that would imply a beginner trail... it's a solid blue. Some pretty steep technical sections.

Great up-track--in perfect condition as of last week. This trail should be rated a green/blue descent (not black) and blue ascent.
